News Release
Search Warrant Wraps Up Drug Trafficking Investigation in Rural Yamhill County (Photo) - 03/07/18

A Yamhill County woman was arrested on multiple drug charges after a search warrant was served at her Pike Road address. The warrant was the culmination of a 5 month long investigation into methamphetamine and heroin sales taking place in Yamhill County.

The search warrant service took place at 11475 NW Pike Road in rural Yamhill yesterday, at about 5:30 a.m. Due to risk factors and fortifications at the property, the initial service of the warrant was performed by Oregon State Police SWAT.

Sheryl Lynn Sublet, 61, was subsequently arrested after Yamhill County Interagency Narcotics Team investigators intercepted methamphetamine and heroin being shipped to her from out of state. The drugs were being packaged and disguised as health supplements. In all, over 8 lbs. of methamphetamine and half a pound of heroin were seized in the investigation. In addition to drugs, $50,000 in cashier checks was seized as proceeds of drug sales.

Sublet is currently in custody at the Yamhill County Jail on four counts of Unlawful Delivery of Methamphetamine, one count of Unlawful Delivery of Heroin, Possession of Methamphetamine, and Unlawful Possession of a Weapon by a Felon. The drug charges are considered commercial drug offenses based on the quantity. Her bail is currently set at $2,522,500.

Also arrested in the warrant service was Eric Lee Engle, 37 and Nicole Vanvleet, 26, both of the Pike Road address. Engle was charged with Felon in Possession of a Firearm and Vanvleet was lodged on a Multnomah County hold for violation of probation.

"This was a quality investigation by YCINT and resulted in the arrest of an individual who was responsible for bringing enormous amounts of drugs into our community, including heroin which carries an extreme risk for overdose" said YCINT Chair Sheriff Tim Svenson. "We appreciate the assistance we received from outside agencies that allowed this case to come together".

YCINT was assisted in this investigation by the Oregon State Police, the Newberg Police Department, The Portland Police Bureau and the Yamhill County Sheriff's Office.
