Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) Special Investigations Unit (SIU) deputies seized 92,000 fentanyl pills, 3 pounds of cocaine and 10 pounds of meth during a recent investigation.
On Sunday, September 18, 2022, deputies learned that a person was driving to the Portland-area with a substantial amount of illegal drugs. SIU deputies, with the assistance of Clackamas County Interagency Task Force, located and followed the vehicle into Clackamas County. A traffic stop was initiated by Clackamas County sheriff’s deputies and SIU presented the search warrant to the driver.
Inside the car, deputies discovered fentanyl, cocaine and meth. Drug tests revealed that the cocaine was also cut with fentanyl, which is a rising trend law enforcement has observed in the metro area.
Two suspects, 23-year-old Easton Hallock and 24-year-old Talulah Miroff, were arrested and booked into the Clackamas County jail on possession charges.
“Even the smallest amounts of fentanyl – one pill – can kill,” said Sheriff Mike Reese. “By taking more than 90 thousand fentanyl pills off our streets, our deputies are saving countless lives.”
