Detectives monitored Flores’ activities in and around the Redmond and Terrebonne areas, Shelton said, which resulted in evidence sufficient to obtain a search warrant for the suspect’s residence.
CODE team members assisted by Deschutes County Sheriff’s deputies executed the warrant about 7:30 p.m. March 14, and discovered about six ounces of crystal meth, a small amount of cocaine, packaging materials and digital scales, and about $4,575 in cash. The sergeant estimated the street value of the methamphetamine at $6,600.
Flores was taken into custody and lodged in the Deschutes County Jail. He is charged with possession, delivery, and manufacture of both cocaine and methamphetamine; and also faces charges for conspiracy related to cocaine and meth sales.
Flores lives only three spaces away in the same trailer park as Ramon Arreola Rodriguez, a man who was arrested 1½ hours earlier for allegedly selling drugs in Redmond. Due to the ongoing investigation, Sgt. Shelton declined to comment on whether the two cases are related.
