Comments Off on Craig Scott Huckins, 56, and Dee Craig Evans, 57, arrested; 16 pounds of Methamphetamine seized in Lane County drug bust

Narcotics investigators from local and state police agencies seized more than 16 pounds of methamphetamine and quantities of heroin, cocaine and a type of meth tablet after a months-long investigation that resulted in two arrests Sunday, according to a news release Monday from Lane County Sheriff’s Sgt. Carrie Carver.

Craig Scott Huckins, 56, and Dee Craig Evans, 57, whose hometowns were not provided, both were arrested during coordinated traffic stops Sunday night in connection with allegedly distributing large amounts of methamphetamine throughout Lane County, Carver said.

Evans was booked into the Lane County Jail on charges of possession of cocaine and conspiracy to deliver methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine and MDMA. He remained jailed Monday night.

Huckins was temporarily lodged in the Springfield Municipal Jail then was transferred to the Douglas County Jail and booked on charges of possession and delivery of methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine, MDMA tablets, and possession of stolen property and unlawful possession of a firearm.

According to Oregon State Police Sgt. Erik Fisher, task force officers seized approximately 16 pounds of crystal methamphetamine, 7.4 ounces of powdered cocaine, 3.5 ounces of powdered heroin, nearly 300 tablets of suspected MDMA (scientific name of 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine) as well as additional, unspecified evidence of drug distribution.

Details of events leading to the arrests and drug seizures were not disclosed, nor was the estimated street value of the drugs.

According to Carver, a child related to Evans was placed into protective custody with the state Department of Human Services after a ­follow-up investigation at a Creswell area motel located the child. The child, whose age and gender were not specified, had been sought for protection following a series of search warrants in early February where investigators seized methamphetamine, cocaine, cash and 43 firearms from three separate locations in Lane County.

The investigation and the arrests were the work of the Lane County Interagency Narcotics Team (INET), assisted by troopers from OSP and Springfield police officers.
