Prompted by citizen complaints over suspected drug and criminal activity, the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office conducted a saturation patrol in the Siletz area of Lincoln County last Monday from approximately 1-4 p.m.
The saturation patrol, conducted with the assistance of Lincoln County Parole and Probation, Newport Police Department and Toledo Police Department, was designed to enhance response to suspicious activities.
During the three-hour saturation, law enforcement officers conducted numerous traffic stops, “knock-and-talks” at specific residences and field interviews of rural Siletz citizens.
Law enforcement collectively issued three traffic citations for Driving While Suspended and made three criminal arrests.
Two of the criminal arrests were drug related and are under investigation.
The third arrest was on Kayla D. Borden, 27, of Siletz. Borden had a Felony warrant out of Linn County for probation violation and was transported to the Lincoln County Jail without incident.
