Meth Dealer Arrested (Photo) - 05/30/24

On Wednesday, May 29th, 2024, detectives with the Douglas Interagency Narcotics Team (DINT) culminated a months long investigation into illegal drug dealing in the Yoncalla area with the execution of search warrants at two locations and making an arrest.

 

In recent months, through varied investigative techniques, detectives obtained evidence of multiple suspected large scale drug deals occurring at a residence in the 600 block of Main Street in Yoncalla.  During that time, detectives seized approximately two pounds of suspected methamphetamine that could be tied directly to the suspect, 54 year old Donald Wayne Baughman of Yoncalla.  

 

On Wednesday afternoon, at approximately 3:45 PM, DINT, with assistance from the Douglas County Sheriff's Office, executed search warrants at two of the suspect's residences; One in the 600 block of Main Street in Yoncalla, and the other in the 1200 block of N First Street in Drain.  Baughman was detained at the Drain residence.  A search there revealed only a small amount of suspected methamphetamine (approximately 10 grams).  

 

During a search of the Yoncalla residence detectives located almost a pound of suspected methamphetamine hidden inside, along with numerous other items seized as evidence of meth dealing.  

 

The residence is located close to Yoncalla Grade School.  There are specific statutes with enhanced penalties for manufacturing and/or dealing controlled substances within 1,000 feet of a school and they apply in this case.  

 

Donald Baughman was ultimately transported to the Douglas County Jail where he was lodged on the following charges:

  • Unlawful Possession of Methamphetamine (3 counts)
  • Unlawful Delivery of Methamphetamine (3 counts)
  • Unlawful Delivery of Methamphetamine Within 1,000' of a School (3 counts)
  • Unlawful Manufacture of Methamphetamine (3 counts)
  • Unlawful Manufacture of Methamphetamine within 1,000' of a School (3 counts).

 

The DINT team is a multi-jurisdictional narcotics task force that identifies, disrupts, and dismantles local, multi-state, and international drug trafficking organizations using an intelligence-driven, multi-agency, prosecutor-supported approach. DINT is supported by the Oregon-Idaho High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) and is composed of members from the Douglas County Sheriff's Office, Roseburg Police Department, Oregon State Police, Bureau of Land Management, and the Douglas County District Attorney's Office. The Oregon-Idaho HIDTA program is an Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) sponsored counterdrug grant program that coordinates with and provides funding resources to multi-agency drug enforcement initiatives, including DINT.

Arrest of Habitual Drug Offender (Photo) - 05/29/24

In the evening hours of Tuesday, May 28th, 2024, detectives with the Douglas Interagency Narcotics Team (DINT) once again arrested a habitual drug offender in the Myrtle Creek area.  Detectives had been investigating the suspected illegal activities of 52 year old Randall Slay, of Myrtle Creek, and had developed reason to believe Slay was driving to a location in the area to make a drug deal.  

 

With help from the Douglas County Sheriff's Office, a traffic stop was initiated on Slay and his vehicle in the 900 block of S. Main Street in Myrtle Creek.  Douglas County Sheriff's Office K-9 “Trapper” was tasked to sniff Slay's vehicle for the odor of narcotics.  Trapper gave the alert, indicating he had indeed smelled the odor of narcotics coming from the vehicle.  

 

Detectives and a deputy located approximately 16.3 grams of suspected methamphetamine in Slay's possession.  In a subsequent search of Slay's vehicle detectives found four more baggies containing various amounts of suspected methamphetamine.  In total, from the traffic stop, detectives seized approximately 173 grams of suspected methamphetamine.  

 

Shortly thereafter a search was conducted of Slay's residence.  At the residence detectives located an additional approximate 134 grams of suspected methamphetamine and several items of drug paraphernalia to include scales, baggies, pipes, scoopers, etc.  

 

Slay was lodged at the Douglas County Jail on the following charges:

  • Unlawful Possession of Methamphetamine
  • Unlawful Delivery of Methamphetamine
  • Unlawful Manufacture of Methamphetamine

 

In just the last two years, this is the third time Slay has been arrested by DINT.
