A Sunriver couple was arrested Wednesday for selling meth from their condo in Sunriver, according to the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office.
Sgt. William Bailey said the DCSO Street Crimes Unit had recently received information that the people living at the 62 Meadow House condo in Sunriver were involved in illegal drug activity, specifically the ongoing sales of methamphetamine from the house.
The Street Crimes Unit initiated an investigation into the illegal drug activity and through various investigative techniques, acquired enough evidence to apply for and obtain a search warrant for the house, Bailey said.
At 1:00 p.m. Wednesday, detectives with the Street Crimes Unit conducted a traffic stop of a vehicle after leaving the 62 Meadow House residence. Thomas J. Martinsen, 45, was driver of this vehicle. A second vehicle that left the a short time later, driven by 42-year-old Jennifer A. Martin, was stopped by the Sunriver Police Department, Bailey said.
During the traffic stop on Martinsen and subsequent search warrant service at the residence, evidence of drug sales and commercial amounts of methamphetamine were seized, Bailey said. Both Martinsen and Martin were taken to the Deschutes County Jail on several charges including manufacture, possession and delivery of a controlled substance.
