HERMISTON - Detectives with the Blue Mountain Enforcement Narcotics Team and Oregon State Police troopers seized a pound of methamphetamine Tuesday after an ongoing investigation led them to the suspect.
Det. Rick Jackson said BENT and OSP officials arrested Luif Carlos Cornejo, 25, of Hermiston, at about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday on accusations of possession of meth, distribution of meth and endangering the welfare of a minor. A 12-year-old boy was with Cornejo when he was arrested.
The meth found in Cornejo's vehicle has a $10,000 street value and contains about 1,800 "user hits," police said.
