A Sweet Home transient was among those arrested Feb. 11 after a Linn County Sheriff's Office narcotics investigation, Sheriff Bruce Riley said.

Detectives conducted a traffic stop on Michael Allyn Jung, 36, of Lebanon at 8:23 p.m. on Feb. 11 in the 800 block of South 10th Street in Lebanon. A search warrant was obtained and served on Jung and his vehicle.

Among the items seized from Jung's vehicle was over one-half ounce of methamphetamine, $1,267 in U.S. currency, an operational digital scale, packaging material, ammunition, and a Smith and Wesson semi-automatic 9mm pistol.

As a result of the investigation, Jung was arrested and charged with unlawful delivery of methamphetamine, unlawful possession of methamphetamine, and carrying a concealed weapon.

Jung's two passengers, Joey Eugene Tackitt, 34, a transient from Sweet Home, and Brenda Michelle Baarsch, 32, a resident of Lebanon, were arrested on outstanding warrants, Riley said.

The Linn County Sheriff's Office was assisted by the Linn Drug Task Force.
