BROOKINGS, Ore. (AP) - Authorities have raided the home of a central Oregon man who they say has been trafficking methamphetamine in the region for a long period of time.

Police had been investigating the suspect for several months before his Saturday arrest. He was held on suspicion of possession, delivery and manufacture of meth before posting 10 percent of $65,000 bail.

Authorities say the suspect had been returning from Portland when they stopped him on Highway 97. They allegedly found $30,000 in cash in his pickup truck.

Detectives also executed a search warrant on the man’s Terrebonne home, where they say they found meth, drug records and a gun.

Bend police Lt. Ken Mannix also says two of the suspect’s vehicles were seized.

The case remains under investigation.
