Written by Press Release on September 16, 2022
Roseburg, Ore., — On September 14, 2022, at about 4:00 AM, the Douglas Interagency Narcotics Team (DINT) conducted an operation in the 700 block of Garden Valley Boulevard, in Roseburg, Oregon. Detectives contacted an individual in the parking lot of a local business.
During the contact detectives deployed canine Trapper to the suspects vehicle, in which Trapper indicated the presence of controlled substances.
During a search of the vehicle detectives located approximately 15 ounces of “rainbow” fentanyl and 2 ounces methamphetamine. These controlled substances were all destined to the Douglas County area.
Multicolored fentanyl is a trend DINT and other drug teams in the state are seeing in our region. This fentanyl is often referred to as “rainbow fetty.” Fentanyl is a highly powerful synthetic opioid which has resulted in a significant increase in overdose cases in our community.
This investigation is ongoing, and no further details will be released at this time.
DINT was assisted by the Roseburg Police Department.
