Portland Police Dog Finds 15 Pounds of Methamphetamine —Valued Between $150k and $240K

Wednesday, March 30, 2016

 

During the course of the Portland Police stopping a vehicle on Tuesday afternoon, Portland Police Bureau Drugs and Vice Division officers obtained consent to search the car and DVD Drug Dog "Lola" was brought in to assist with the search. 

During the search, Lola located nearly 15 pounds of methamphetamine wrapped in a blanket in the trunk of the car.  According to the website narcoticsnews.com a pound of methamphetamine sells for $10,000 - $16,000 in Portland. Thus, the take was valued at between $150,000 and $240,000.

Officers from the Westside Interagency Narcotics Team (WIN) and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) responded to assist with the investigation. 

24-year-old Jose Ignacio Reyes-Morfin was booked into the Washington County Jail on charges of Manufacturing, Delivery and Possession of Methamphetamine. The traffic stop was on a 2007 Chevrolet Impala being driven at Southwest 185th Avenue and Baseline Road.

1) Do Not Run

Stay as quiet and motionless as you can, "like a tree." Quick gestures or running will only bring out the dog’s prey or chase instinct. If you can, slowly back away while turning your head and eyes away from the dog. Also, avoid screaming.

2) Protect Yourself

Attempt to place anything you have, such as a jacket or backpack, between yourself and the attacking dog. Keep your arms and hands near your body, making it harder for the animal to reach out and bite you. Also, turn your hands into fists to protect your fingers. If you can, curl up in the fetal position.

3) Choke The Dog

If a dog cannot breathe or is choking, it will probably stop biting you. If a dog is attacking you, try to ram either an object or your hand down its throat as far as you can to make it gag. Also, try to put pressure against the animal’s throat and windpipe.

4) Do Not Use Force

Although it seems logical, do not try to hit the dog. With dogs like pit bulls, bred to attack, hitting it will only anger it and make it more vicious.

5) Report The Incident

Even if you receive no serious injuries, it is best to let the authorities know about a dangerous or menacing dog. It may only injure someone worse in the future. Contact animal control services, such as Multnomah County Animal Control
