Meth seizure and arrest

Douglas Interagency Narcotics Team (DINT)

On Friday, June 7th, 2019, the Douglas Interagency Narcotics Team conducted a surveillance operation that ultimately ended with the arrest of 43 year old Walter Maureceo-Hernandez of Salem, Oregon on numerous high level drug charges.

Maureceo-Hernandez had traveled to Oregon from California on a bus line, and was dropped off in Roseburg.  I-5 is a major drug trafficking corridor, and bus lines are just one of the many methods drug traffickers use to transport their contraband. 

After being dropped off, Maureceo-Hernandez entered another vehicle and DINT detectives conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle in the 2500 block of NE Stephens Street in Roseburg, at approximately 2:00 PM.  Roseburg Police Department's drug detection K-9 "Trapper" was applied to the vehicle and he alerted, indicating the odor of contraband was coming from inside the vehicle.  

Detectives searched the vehicle and found a backpack in the trunk belonging to Maureceo-Hernandez.  The backpack contained a large amount of narcotics to include almost 5 pounds of methamphetamine, and over 1 pound of heroin.  

Maureceo-Hernandez was lodged in the Douglas County Jail on charges of  Unlawful Posession of Methamphetamine, Unlawful Delivery of Methamphetamine, Unlawful Possession of Heroin, and Unlawful Delivery of Heroin.  Maureceo-Hernandez was also found to have serveral warrants out for his arrest out of Marion County, Oregon for "Dangerous Drugs" and other drug related crimes.
