Yesterday, a Eugene Police Street Crimes Unit arrested a man involved drug dealing and seized drugs, guns, and more than $270,000 in cash. 

On March 5, Eugene Police Street Crimes Unit, SWAT, Drone, and Investigations teams executed a search warrant at 850 N. Street, Springfield, Oregon. The subject of the search warrant, 48-year-old Joshua James Herrington, was stopped away from the location and detained during the investigation.
