WEST LINN, Ore. - West Linn police on Tuesday arrested a man and a woman on drug charges after officers discovered the pair allegedly had ecstasy pills and psilocybin mushrooms during a traffic stop.
Officers arrested 28-year-old Gordon Filemu Cady of Portland and 18-year-old Marin Kathryn Vesley of Laguna Niguel, Calif. on two charges each of possession and distribution of a controlled substance.
