Investigators seized a total of 10 stolen Harley Davidson motorcycles, motorcycle parts, guns, methamphetamine, marijuana, hashish oil, prescription drugs and other stolen items during the raids, which started about 3 a.m.

Jesse Stewart Copeland, 39, was cited on theft and drug crimes and released with an order to appear in court. Colin Reid McGregor, 52, was arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for illegally re-entering the country after having been deported following a felony conviction. He also faces potential theft and drug possession charges. Travis James Wigger, 34, also was arrested on theft and drug charges. McGregor and Wigger were being held in the Lane County Jail.
