Three men were arrested following a raid at a northeast Salem home Friday when police seized 12 pounds of marijuana, a small quantity of meth, six firearms, and over $500 cash.
The Salem Street Crimes Unit was assisted by the Keizer Police Department and Marion County Sheriff’s Office when they executed a search warrant at 4555 York Avenue NE. The warrant was obtained as a result of an ongoing investigation into marijuana sales from the residence, which included a controlled purchase of two ounces of meth from one of the residents.
Detectives allegedly found 12 pounds of marijuana, a small quantity of meth, packaging materials and other related drug paraphernalia; plus four rifles, a shotgun, a derringer pistol; and $529 cash. According to a news release issued by the Salem Police Department, one of the recovered rifles was previously reported stolen through the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department.
