Tuesday’s arrest stems from a 6-month CCITF investigation, which started in Oregon.

Officials said the arrest of Poitras led to the search of 2 locations in Vancouver, which then led to the additional seizure of almost $10,000 in cash and evidence of extensive methamphetamine and heroin processing.

Poitras was booked into the Clackamas County Jail on charges of unlawful distribution of methamphetamine and heroin.

His bail was set at $500,000.
