4 Lane County men held on drug charges
Police arrested four Lane County men over the weekend after finding 216 marijuana plants growing along a creek on land the men own in Douglas County.
Charged with manufacturing, possessing and delivering marijuana were Jerry Fruichantie, 68, Joe Ward, 55, and Norman Weigel, 55, all of Cottage Grove, and Jerry Gries, 53, of Creswell. The men were being held in the Douglas County Jail.
Officers from the Douglas Interagency Narcotics Team served a search warrant at 1094 Elk Ridge Forest Road about a mile south of Loon Lake outside Reedsport. Three of the men were arrested at the residence Saturday. Ward was arrested later by Cottage Grove police.
Nine more marijuana plants were found in a search of a residence near London shared by Fruichantie and Weigel, police spokesman Dan Hoy said.
Police estimated the value of the crop at more than $300,000 if it had been allowed to grow for another six weeks.
Human remains found at campsite
The state medical examiner will analyze the remains of a man whose decomposed body was found Saturday in the Three Sisters Wilderness.
A surveyor for the U.S. Forest Service found the body at a campsite just off the Pacific Crest Trail about five miles south of Big Lake, Linn County Sheriff Dave Burright said.
No identification was found with the body, although there was "a significant amount of cash," Burright said. The remains had extensive high quality dental work, which may help in identifying the body, he said.
The examination is expected to be completed later this week.
