The Central Oregon Drug Enforcement team, along with assistance from the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, arrested a Bend man Sunday morning for possessing and distributing heroin and methamphetamine.
The arrest of the suspect, 39-year-old Michael Hollibaugh, was the result of a short-term drug investigation. Evidence obtained through the investigation showed Hollibaugh would purchase large amounts of both heroin and methamphetamine and would sell them for profit.
Hollibaugh was arrested during a traffic stop conducted by DCSO. DCSO deputies and CODE detectives found around three ounces of heroin and a half ounce of methamphetamine in Hollibaugh’s car.
Hollibaugh was charged with possession, manufacturing and distributing heroin, and possession of methamphetamine.
