New Marijuana Enforcement Officer Busts Illegal Grow

Just three months ago, the Deschutes County Sheriff’s office added a new officer to their ranks to assist the Central Oregon drug enforcement team, with a focus on illegal marijuana operations in Deschutes County.

The new proactive marijuana enforcement officer focuses on the illegal manufacture, processing, sale and exportation of marijuana, as well as performing regular compliance checks. It’s a position sheriff Shane Nelson has long advocated for.

The new detective is paying dividends already with a recent bust of an illegal grow in southeast Bend. In addition to the 93 mature marijuana plants found, 55 immature plants, nearly 6 pounds of dried marijuana and 5 pounds of butane honey oil product were also seized at the home.

The proactive marijuana enforcement officer position, as well as the two new positions at the Bend Police Department, is fully funded by the Deschutes County Board of Commissioners using funds from the county’s marijuana tax collections.
