According to Deschutes County Sheriff’s deputy Sgt. Michael Espinoza, the Street Crimes Unit (SCU) had been investigating David Kingma, 36, and Donna Otis, 45, for the past two months and investigators believe the pair have been selling methamphetamine in the Bend area for several months.

SCU members executed a search warrant in an apartment at 2642 NW Fawn Run Lane in Bend about 4:30 p.m., July 17, and the suspects were taken into custody.

The two were lodged in the Deschutes County Jail and are both charged with possession, delivery, and manufacturing of a schedule II controlled substance (methamphetamine). 

“As part of this same investigation, Kingma was also charged with endangering the welfare of a minor and sex abuse III,” Espinoza said, without providing further details.

The sergeant encourages anyone with additional information regarding the ongoing investigation to contact the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office SCU.
