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.
