The Web site for The Oregonian newspaper reports that authorities in that state “seized more than 22 kilos of cocaine worth about $500,000 on the street, handguns and rifles, five autos, a small amount of methamphetamine, and $16,000 in cash” in an effort that was called “Corridor Express.”
The press report said further that “Operation Campus Blow, which began with a small marijuana bust in eastern Oregon in October 2007, focused on a Eugene drug dealer who supplied heroin, cocaine, meth, pot and prescription drugs to college students. A Washington County sheriff's deputy shows drugs and cash seized from a drug cartel.”
Reports from numerous other sources indicate that more than 200 officers from numerous local law enforcement agencies joined the DEA in the multi-agency effort.
