On February 13, 2020, The Portland Police Bureau officers assigned to the Narcotics and Organized Crime (NOC) unit arrested a subject in Portland carrying approximately 33 pounds of methamphetamine. Portland Police Officer Chris Devlin and his K9 partner Niko were essential in locating the methamphetamine.
The investigation determined the methamphetamine was intended for distribution in the Portland metropolitan area. This is an estimated 300,000 dosage units valued at over $750,000.
As this investigation is ongoing, further details will not be released at this time.
"This case highlights the important work our K9 teams do to increase public safety," said Assistant Chief Andrew Shearer. "Methamphetamine is a dangerous narcotic that destroys and takes lives. The work of the Narcotics and Organized Crime unit is critical to interdict drugs before they flood our community."
