Last week, the Klickitat County Sheriff's Office (KCSO) executed three separate search warrants in Dallesport, White Salmon, and Appleton. The search warrants followed several months of investigations into illegal drug dealing in the county.
Five people have been arrested for a variety of alleged drug and weapons charges. Arrested were: Kelly Whitmore, 51; Lacey Bond, 32; Troy Yeager, 49; Leonard Balled, 43; and Dianna Bond, 61.
The search warrants resulted in the seizure of more than an ounce of methamphetamine, over half a pound of marijuana, psilocybin mushrooms, cash, firearms, and drug paraphernalia. KCSO authorities said they believe evidence indicates that drug-related activities allegedly conducted by those arrested spread into neighboring counties as well as jurisdictions within the state of Oregon.
The investigation is continuing.
