The Lebanon Police Department executed a search warrant on Feb. 17 that led to the arrests of 14 people.

Several other police departments, including the Linn County SWAT team, assisted with the search.

The warrant was served at 57 W. Ash St. A total of 22 people were found and detained inside the residence.

The search was a result of an ongoing investigation that Detective John Trahan had been working on for a couple of months.

Detective Sgt. Frank Stevenson said there had been complaints about the house from residents in the area, and patrol officers noticed suspicious activity.

A 14-year-old child found at the house was put into protective custody by the Department of Human Services.

“There was a lot of drug paraphernalia. Pipes, baggies and needles were found in every room of the house,” Stevenson said.

He estimated officers seized about two grams of methamphetamine. Most also had warrants on unrelated charges.

Stevenson said the only surprise was how many people were inside the house. LPD anticipated 10 people and there were 22.

The Linn County Sheriff’s Office, the Albany Police Department, Sweet Home Police Department and Linn County Parole and Probation assisted in the search.

“We couldn’t have done it without the cooperation of the other departments,” Stevenson said. “They assisted us in a great way. No one was hurt and everyone was safe.”

There were 15 Lebanon officers involved in the search on Friday.

Most suspects were charged with possession of methamphetamine.

The investigation is ongoing, and police expect more arrests.
