Lincoln Interagency Narcotics Team (LINT), with the assistance of the US Marshals Fugitive Task Force and local and state law enforcement agencies, arrested three people last Thursday on several charges. One of the individuals arrested was wanted since 2011 and eluded capture about two weeks ago near Siletz.
Acting on information that wanted subject DENNIS ADLEM CAREY, age 26, from Toledo, was in the Lincoln Beach area, on February 21, 2013, LINT detectives and US Marshals conducted surveillance on a residence in the 100 block of Wakash Street. CAREY was wanted on a 2011 Probation Violation warrant and was reported armed with firearms as he continued to hide and elude arrest. Officers saw CAREY exit the residence on foot and he was apprehended by US Marshal Fugitive Task Force members. CAREY was in possession of methamphetamine and other evidence for which additional charges are pending.
A second male identified as ZAK ALDRICH HARRIS, age 30, from Lincoln Beach, was arrested at the residence for Probation Violation. CAREY's girlfriend, SARAH L. DAUENHAUER, age 25, was also arrested for Frequenting a Place Where Controlled Substances are Kept.
Information developed indicated drugs, a gun and cash was buried near the residence. Subsequent search found over 3 ounces of methamphetamine, heroin, cash and a handgun. A search warrant executed at the residence and a second residence in the Siletz area led to the recovery of firearms, including one confirmed stolen, and other evidence. A vehicle used by CAREY during a previous elude was found and seized by Toledo Police Department.
The arrests were part of a combined effort involving US Marshals Fugitive Task Force, Toledo Police Department, Newport Police Department K-9 unit, Lincoln County Sheriff's Office, Oregon State Police, and Lincoln County Parole and Probation. The investigation is continuing and additional arrests pending.
LINT is comprised of members from Lincoln City Police Department, Lincoln County Sheriff's Office, Newport Police Department, Lincoln County District Attorney's Office, and Oregon State Police.
