Four people were arrested on various drug-related charges during an early-morning search warrant served on 27th Avenue in Sweet Home Thursday, Feb. 11, Police Chief Jeff Lynn said.

At approximately 6 a.m. Thursday, Sweet Home Police, with assistance from the Linn County Regional SWAT team, Linn County Sheriff’s Office, Lebanon Police Department and the Albany Police Department served a narcotics related search warrant at 927 27th Ave.

Law enforcement officers encountered four adults on the property, Lynn said.

Ashley Kay Miles, 22, was taken into custody for possession of a controlled substance -methamphetamine, frequenting a place where drugs are used or sold, parole violation warrant and a Linn County justice warrant for first-degree failure to appear. She was lodged at Linn County Jail.

A narcotics investigation was opened by the Sweet Home Police Department due to ongoing frequent short stay traffic and suspicious activity related to the occupants at the residence, he said.
