Two Redmond residents, a man and a woman, were arrested Friday evening for crimes related to the alleged sale of methamphetamine after they were stopped with cash and drugs in a stolen vehicle that had eluded deputies the day before, authorities reported.
Mickey Moore, 19, was positively identified by deputies as the driver who fled December 20 from police in the Redmond area in a 2007 Subaru Impreza stolen from Bend, Deschutes County Sheriff’s Sgt. Michael Espinoza said.

Moore and his passenger, 32-year old Danielle Hope Sahme, were stopped in the vehicle at 8395 NE 1st Street in Terrebonne by the county’s Street Crimes Unit (SCU), detectives, and patrol officers, the sergeant said.
During a search, detectives found in Sahme’s possession over 1.5 ounces of methamphetamine, a Schedule II controlled substance, about $3,100 in cash, packaging material and weight scales, Espinoza reported in a news release.
Moore and Sahme were taken into custody and lodged in the Deschutes County Jail.
Moore is charged with conspiracy to possess and deliver methamphetamine, unlawful use of a motor vehicle, and eluding.
Sahme is charged with possession, distribution, and manufacture of methamphetamine.
“More arrests and charges are anticipated,” Eszpinoza said, referring to the ongoing investigation by the SCU that focuses on street-level sales of methamphetamine.
