MERRILL, Ore. — Officers from multiple agencies made two arrests and recovered about eight pounds of methamphetamine during a traffic stop along Highway 39 on Saturday, according to the Klamath Falls Police Department (KFPD).

Officers and detectives from the Basin Interagency Narcotics Enforcement Team (BINET), the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and Oregon State Police stopped Merrill Pit Road near Highway 39. The agencies served a search warrant on both the vehicle and the two people inside.

"A search warrant was served on the vehicle and its two occupants," Klamath Falls Police said in a statement. "Approximately 8 pounds of methamphetamine were seized from the traffic stop and both suspects were lodged in the Klamath County Jail."

The driver of the vehicle has been identified as 50-year-old Tracy Witcraft. With her was 51-year-old Ronald Collman, her boyfriend. Both face felony charges for commercial drug trafficking.

Klamath Falls Police said that BINET and the DEA also searched the couple's apartment on Broad Street in Klamath Falls, finding smaller amounts of meth and "many other items of evidence" related to large-scale meth distribution in the Klamath Falls area.

BINET operates out of the Klamath Falls Police Department and includes detectives from that agency, OSP, and the Sheriff's Office. It works closely with the DEA, Homeland Security, parole and probation officers, and child welfare authorities.

Anyone with information regarding the illegal distribution of drugs within Klamath County is encouraged to call the Klamath Falls Police Department Anonymous Tip Line at (541) 883-5334.
