Two Arrested in Thurston INET Drug Bust


On Tuesday March 3, 2015, members of Lane County Inter-agency Narcotics Enforcement Team (INET) executed a state search warrant at the 6400 block of Thurston Rd, Springfield, Oregon.

Investigators seized three firearms along with evidence of the unlawful manufacturing and delivery of heroin and marijuana, and unlawful possession of heroin, methamphetamine, and marijuana. Investigators found the garage area of the residence had been modified structurally to conceal growing marijuana plants and the residence’s electrical systems had been modified.
The City of Springfield Building Codes Department was consulted and determined the modifications to the electrical system were unsafe and requested the Springfield Utility Board to respond to the location and cut power to the building.

Tim Chuey Weather:

No change, for the time being, from the cold foggy weather. Change will be coming for the weekend.

High: 45
Low: 27
Rain: fog & freezing fog


A high pressure ridge (“Arch” shape on the jet stream) is keeping us cold with some possible sunshine, as long as the fog clears. So, for the rest of the work week we’ll see at least some sunshine after the late night and early AM fog and/or freezing fog clear out. That also means that our air quality is suffering with the sinking air of high pressure holding on to the pollutants at the surface. The ridge will slide over allowing more clouds, warmer temperatures, and maybe a chance of precipitation returning over the weekend as a cold front moves in from the northwest. The full ” Cold” moon will occur Saturday at 6:36 AM, but the clouds will probably cover the sky even if it doesn’t rain.

Forecast for the Southern and lower Mid Willamette Valley including Eugene-Springfield and Albany-Corvallis: Areas of fog and freezing again this AM, mostly cloudy with some lingering fog this afternoon, mostly cloudy with patchy evening fog, areas of fog and patchy freezing fog late tonight and Friday AM, cloudy with some patchy lingering fog in the afternoon, patchy evening fog, mostly cloudy with areas of fog and freezing fog late Friday night and very early Saturday AM, then mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of showers Saturday afternoon and Saturday night highs 36-45 lows 27-32. Mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of showers Sunday, areas of fog and patchy freezing fog late Sunday night and Monday AM, mostly cloudy Monday and Monday night, mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of rain Tuesday, a (30%) chance of rain Tuesday night, then mostly cloudy with a slight (20%) chance of rain Wednesday highs 47-44 lows 30-34. (seasonal averages high 46 low 34)

Because weather forecasting is a combination of science, intuition, and timing there can be no absolute guarantees that individual forecasts will be 100% accurate. Nature is in a constant state of flux and sudden unexpected weather events can happen.
