Convicted Felon Busted with Drugs, Cash, and 29 Guns

On Monday, March 14th, 2022, detectives with the Douglas Interagency Narcotics Team (DINT) arrested 51 year old Joseph Barbero of Roseburg.  

As part of an ongoing investigation, detectives initiated a traffic stop on Barbero on Harvard Avenue/Umpqua Street, in Roseburg. Barbero was detained, pending application for a search warrant.

Upon execution of a search warrant on Barbero’s vehicle, detectives found approximately 363 grams of suspected methamphetamine, and two firearms, along with scales, drug packaging, and other paraphernalia.

Detectives followed up later that night with a search warrant at Barbero’s residence at the Lookingglass Apartments in Roseburg. In Barbero’s apartment detectives found 27 more firearms, 74 pounds of green bud marijuana, and a large amount of drug paraphernalia. Barbero is not allowed to possess firearms as he is a convicted felon.

Barbero was lodged at the Douglas County Jail on the following charges:

  • Unlawful Possession of Methamphetamine
  • Unlawful Delivery of Methamphetamine
  • Felon in Possession of Firearm (29 counts)
  • Unlawful Possession of Marijuana

DINT was assisted in this case by the Roseburg Police Department, as well as drug detection dog “Trapper”.
