Police Arrest Two Men, Seize 14 Pounds of Heroin and $90,000 in Cash

Wednesday, March 25, 2015

 

$90,000 in cash seized by Portland Police.

On March 19, the Portland Police Drugs and Vice Division (DVD) investigators concluded a three month investigation into a local drug trafficking organization operating in the Portland metro area. 

Investigators were conducting surveillance and observed individuals in separate vehicles meet up in Vancouver, carry items into a garage and close the door. A short time later the people exited the garage and went in different directions, according to police. 

Portland Police Investigators, with the assistance of officers from the Vancouver Police Department, eventually contacted both vehicles and detained the occupants at Southeast Mill Plain Boulevard and 160th Avenue. 

Police seized approximately $90,000 in cash from one vehicle and 13.8 pounds of heroin from the frame rails of the other vehicle. Four individuals were detained and two were eventually lodged in the Clark CountyJail on drug-related charges, according to police. The men arrested have been identified by police as Jose Luis Mariscal Gonzalez, 42, and Jesus Alejandro Vega-Cazarez, 19. 

Investigators later served search warrants on two residences in Oregon associated with the suspects. 

The 13.8 pounds of heroin is estimated to be worth $650,000 (wholesale) and translates to approximately 1,251,914 individual doses, according to the Portland Police Bureau. 

Police encourage community members concerned about drug activity in their neighborhood to report the information online or call the Drugs and Vice Division Drug Complaint Hotline at (503) 823-3784.
