Two Drug Arrests Lead to Huge Pot Bust

GOLD HILL, Ore. — Two women were arrested last Friday after Oregon State Police (OSP) pulled over a vehicle near Lakeview and discovered over five pounds of concealed marijuana in the trunk. After further investigation, OSP Drug Enforcement detectives were led to a Gold-Hill area location where 39 pounds of marijuana was uncovered and a third person was not arrested, but rather cited.

Last Friday morning an OSP trooper stopped a rented vehicle with Utah license plates traveling eastbound on Highway 140 for a lane use traffic violation. The trooper found over 5 pounds of marijuana concealed in the vehicle’s trunk. The two women in the car were identified as 54-year old driver, Susan Jackson, and 53-year old Cheryl Jackson.

Both of which are from Boise, Idaho and were arrested for unlawful possession and distribution of a controlled substance, being marijuana.

After further investigation, detectives were led to a 61-year old man’s residence in Gold Hill. A search conducted at the location yielded an additional 39 pounds of marijuana and other related evidence. The suspect was identified as Timothy Wyatt. He was cited and released to appear at a later date in Jackson County Circuit Court for unlawful manufacture, possession, and distribution of a controlled substance (marijuana).

    Law enforcement needs to re-direct its focus on crime…to those that are REAL crimes.

    I was in Federal Prison for 5 years for a marijuana offense. No, it was not for simple possession. I was arrested aboard a Lockheed PV2 in Marianna, Florida…charged and convicted for conspiracy to import and distribute 12,000 pounds of marijuana.

    As those 5 years rolled by, what I did see were armed bank robbers, coming and going…while I still sat there for marijuana. Most of the bank robbers only spent 17 to 24 months. But, I and my fellow ‘drug offenders,’…we stayed for YEARS.

    I wrote about the escapades that led to my incarceration.
    I admit, I had a great time.
    No one was injured, no one was killed, firearms were not involved…there were no victims.

    We were Americans…doing what Americans do best…living free.

    The concept most overlooked in ‘the war on drugs.’…freedom of the individual.

    We are Americans..we live in a free country…this is what we have been told since birth.

    The prohibition of marijuana is a farce. It is time to start living the way our forefathers intended.
