ROSEBURG, Ore. -- A Portland man was arrested after authorities said they found “a huge amount” of drugs at a Roseburg Home on Monday.

Galen Trigg, 47, was found at the home in the 300 block of SE Pine Street, the Douglas Interagency Narcotics Team (DINT) said.

While serving a search warrant at the home, authorities said they found about 2.5 pounds of methamphetamine, 1.4 pounds of heroin, 30 grams of cocaine and 7 grams of psilocybin mushrooms. They said they also found firearms, cash and other evidence of drug-related crimes.

DINT said the amount of drugs found indicates high-level dealer activity.

Trigg had a warrant for his arrest from the U.S. Marshal’s Service and was taken to the Douglas County Jail. He faces charges of unlawful possession and delivery of meth, heroin and cocaine and two counts of felon in possession of a firearm.

Matthew Shields, 40, of Roseburg was also found at the scene and was allegedly in possession of user amounts of meth and heroin. He was cited for unlawful possession of both substances and released.

The investigation is ongoing.
