Madras Couple Arrested After Multi-State Guns For Drugs Scheme (Photo) - 01/27/22

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Date: January 27th, 2022

Released by: Sergeant Kent Vander Kamp 

La Pine, OR – 

On January 24th, 2022, at approximately 12:30AM, the Central Oregon Drug Enforcement Team concluded a long-term investigation with the arrest of David Toedtemeier, age 31, and his wife, Kylee Janette Toedtemeier, age 38, both of Madras, Oregon. 

Detectives identified the Toedtemeiers as fentanyl, heroin, and methamphetamine traffickers in the central Oregon area. The initial investigation alleges Mrs. Toedtemeier was legally purchasing firearms in the central Oregon area and providing them to Mr. Toedtemeier, a convicted felon. Together, they exchanged the guns for drugs in northern California. Mr. Toedtemeier also possessed a loaded pistol at his arrest. 

After an extensive surveillance operation in California and Oregon, the Toedtemeiers, and their five-week-old infant, was contacted during a traffic stop on Highway 97 in La Pine. CODE Detectives applied for and received a Search Warrant for the vehicle as it arrived in Oregon. The Jeep was stopped with the Search Warrant authority and not for a traffic violation. 

A Warm Springs Police narcotic K9 alerted to controlled substances inside the 2004 Ford Explorer Mrs. Toedtemeier was driving. 

A subsequent search of the SUV located a sizeable amount of methamphetamine, heroin, fentanyl disguised as Oxycodone (M30) pills. In addition, the couple’s five-week-old infant was in the backseat and surrounded by packages of illicit drugs. An additional firearm and drugs were later found inside the couple’s Madras home during a secondary late morning search. 

The Oregon Department of Human Services – Child Welfare responded to the scene and assumed care of the infant.

The Central Oregon Drug Enforcement Team wants the central Oregon community to understand these counterfeit pills are killing people in our community daily. These victims include teens and unsuspecting people believing it is a legitimate prescription.  Drug traffickers use fake pills, similar to these, to exploit the opioid crisis and prescription drug misuse. CDC reports more than 93,000 people died last year of an overdose in the U.S., the highest ever recorded. Fentanyl, the synthetic opioid most commonly found in these counterfeit pills, is the primary driver in this alarming increase in overdose deaths.   Central Oregon Law Enforcement sees the same troubling overdose trends. For more information about counterfeit pills, go to www.DEA.gov/onepill 

Mr. Toedtemeier was lodged in the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Jail with the following criminal charges.

Unlawful Possession, Manufacture, and Attempted Distribution of Methamphetamine

Unlawful Possession, Manufacture, and Attempted Distribution of Schedule II Controlled Substance

Unlawful Possession, Manufacture, and Attempted Distribution of Heroin

Felon in Possession of a Dangerous Weapon (Firearm)

Mr. Toedtemeier's bail was enhanced, under ORS 475.900, due to the commercial quantities found in his possession. 

 

Mrs. Toedtemeier was cited, in lieu of custody, with the following criminal charges. 

Providing Firearms Used in Felony

Endangering the Welfare of a Minor

This investigation is on-going. In addition to the state charges, this case has been forwarded to United States Attorney’s Office for consideration. Additional federal charges are expected. 

The CODE Team was assisted by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, Warm Springs Police Department, Crook County Sheriff’s Office and the Redmond Police Department during this investigation.

Bend Man Arrested for Drug Trafficking After Multi-County Investigation and Pursuit - 01/13/22

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Date: January 13th, 2022

Released by: Sergeant Kent Vander Kamp 

Bend, OR – 

On January 13th, 2022, the Central Oregon Drug Enforcement Team, in collaboration with the Clackamas County Interagency Task Force, concluded a short-term investigation with the arrest of Schaun Michael Johnson, age 37, of Bend, Oregon. 

Detectives identified Johnson from a concurrent investigation as a fentanyl and methamphetamine trafficker in the central Oregon area. After an extensive surveillance operation in several Oregon counties, Johnson was contacted during a traffic stop on Highway 97, between Sunriver and Bend. 

During the traffic stop, a Bend Police narcotic K9, “Lady Bug,” alerted to the presence of controlled substances inside the 2021 Ford F-150 Johnson was driving. After the K9 alerted, Johnson sped away, and DCSO deputies briefly pursued before discontinuing the pursuit for public safety interests. Johnson threw large quantities of packaged methamphetamine and fentanyl from the truck onto the highway as he was fleeing. Detectives briefly closed the highway to collect the drug packages from the roadway. 

Other Detectives found Johnson's truck off-road, in the trees, about 3 miles away from the traffic stop just south of the Baker Rd exit. Johnson fled the vehicle and ran into the surrounding woods.

Deputies and Detectives began searching the contained area with the assistance of a DCSO Drone and a US Forest Service Law Enforcement tracking K9. Within minutes, Johnson was found running in the area and immediately surrendered when confronted by law enforcement officers. 

A subsequent search of the truck located additional methamphetamine, heroin, fentanyl, and miscellaneous prescription drugs. Johnson, a previously convicted felon, was also in possession of a stolen pistol at his arrest. 

Johnson was lodged in the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Jail with the following charges.

  • Unlawful Possession, Manufacture, and Attempted Distribution of Methamphetamine
  • Unlawful Possession, Manufacture, and Attempted Distribution of Schedule II Controlled Substance
  • Unlawful Possession of Heroin
  • Attempt to Elude (Felony)
  • Attempt to Elude (Misd)
  • Tampering with Evidence
  • Felon in Possession of a Dangerous Weapon (Firearm)
  • Theft I (Firearm)

Johnson's bail was enhanced, under ORS 475.900, due to the commercial quantities found in his possession. 

CODE Detectives were assisted by the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, US Forest Service Law Enforcement, Bend Police Department, Sunriver Police Department, and ODOT Incident Response.
