PENDLETON - While serving a search warrant, police detectives were forced to shoot a dog that attacked them Tuesday afternoon at a residence where they found methamphetamine and arrested three people.
Detectives with the Blue Mountain Enforcement Narcotics Team and the Pendleton Police Department served a search warrant at around 2 p.m. Tuesday at 1105 S.E. Alexander Place. A dog near the residence attacked several officers, who shot and killed the animal. No officers were hurt.
Police found a small amount of methamphetamine and a stolen scooter at the residence. They arrested Donald J. Asbridge, 44, Daniel S. Chamberlin, 19, and Debra L. Asbridge, 39, all residents of the home.
Donald Asbridge was arrested on probable cause charges of possession of a controlled substance for meth and endangering the welfare of a minor, since there was a 14-year-old boy in the home. Debra Ashbridge was also cited for those charges but was released by police until her court appearance.
Chamberlin was arrested on probable cause charges of receiving stolen property. Both he and Daniel Ashbridge were lodged in the Umatilla County Jail but have since been released.
