Tillamook County Sheriff's Office In Action


Spring, 2014 – A very busy couple of months with several significant drug busts and then one storm after another giving us heavy rains, damaging high winds, snowy/icy roads, and overflowing rivers.

In January, TNT assisted several law enforcement agencies in serving several search warrants which led to the seizure of around 1 pound of methamphetamine, along with one-half pound of cocaine, $24,000 in cash, weapons and four arrests. With information forwarded to federal investigators, additional arrests along with another very large seizure of narcotics resulted.

In February, an investigation by TNT and deputies resulting from an overdose case, led to the arrest of three individuals for possession of heroin, possession of methamphetamine, and numerous other charges.

Additionally in February, our Emergency Management Department was very busy, first dealing with over five inches of snow and ice in low lying areas with over 20 in the Coast Range passes along with extended periods of subfreezing temperatures over the first week of February. The next two weeks saw a strong weather system about every 24 hours, each bringing periods of heavy rains, damaging high winds, and rough seas. Each system pushed the area rivers higher and higher, causing several of them to reach bank full, and one, the Nehalem River, climbed to just above flood stage, which causes flooding of low lying farmlands, some road flooding, and flooding of structures in the low lying areas. As I write this, we are waiting for what is expected to be the last in this series of storms. The weather pattern is expected to finally change to something more normal for this time of the year.
