In another case the Sheriff's Office working with the Mid-Interagency Narcotics Task Force was able to arrest a suspected methamphetamine dealer who was believed to be selling large quantities of methamphetamine in Bingen and White Salmon. The sheriff's office received information that Juan Carlos Alonso Sanchez was dealing with larger quantities of methamphetamine to several subjects in Bingen and White Salmon.
The sheriff's office and MINT were able to introduce an undercover deputy to Sanchez. Sanchez sold a half of an ounce of suspected methamphetamine to an undercover deputy at the Home Depot in The Dalles. After the deal Sanchez agreed to sell a couple of grams of suspected cocaine to the deputy sheriff. This transaction was made in the parking lot in Mosier.
