Police seize 12 pounds of pot in Salem drug raid
by Cheryl McDermott

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.
