Oregon man arrested for allegedly selling meth, marijuana to kids from RV he parked near schools

A man identified as Jeremy Lee Linville, 47, was arrested last week after police caught him allegedly selling methamphetamine and marijuana to schoolchildren in Eugene, Oregon from an RV that he would strategically park near schools.

The Lane County Sheriff’s Office announced the arrest on Tuesday. They had opened an investigation into the matter after receiving a tip earlier this month that a man was dealing drugs to children.

Linville was evidently targeting South Eugene High School and Roosevelt Middle School. He moved around and parked at different locations to reportedly ply his evil drug trade with juveniles in the area, according to Fox News.

The accused pusher also frequently parked near the Amazon Skate Park, according to authorities.

Deputies served a search warrant on Linville and his trailer in Eugene on Thursday, January 19th. While searching the RV, deputies found methamphetamine and several pounds of marijuana according to the sheriff’s office. A stolen firearm was also found in the RV and was confiscated.

Linville was booked into the Lane County Jail, according to Fox News.

The man is facing charges of felon in possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of methamphetamine, unlawful delivery of marijuana, and delivery of MDMA within 1,000 feet of a school.

The sale of meth and fentanyl has become endemic in Oregon. It is being sold to children and adults alike with deadly consequences.

On January 19, 2023, the same day the search warrant was executed on the RV, at approximately 5:00 pm, an Oregon State Police Senior Trooper stopped an SUV for a lane use violation on northbound US 97 near milepost 132, just north of Bend. He was reportedly shocked at what he found.

According to a report by the Oregon State Police, “During the traffic stop, the Trooper noticed signs of criminal activity, and a consent search of the vehicle was conducted. During a search of the vehicle, the Trooper located approximately 10 pounds of suspected methamphetamine and approximately five pounds of suspected powder fentanyl concealed within the vehicle. The K-9 assisted in the investigation by alerting the Trooper to the odor of controlled substances in the location where the drugs were hidden.”

“The driver was identified as Dania Marbella Banegas-Ramos (28) of Oakland, California. Banegas-Ramos was taken into custody and lodged in the Deschutes County Jail for various drug offenses,” the report added.

OSP Troopers were assisted during the investigation and arrest by Detectives from the OSP-Criminal Investigations Division-Drug Enforcement Section (Domestic Highway Enforcement Initiative), Special Agents with the Drug Enforcement Administration – Bend Task Force, and the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office.

Oregon has the highest rates of methamphetamine and prescription opioid misuse in the nation, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) as reported by KGW8.

One current example includes two men smoking meth out of a glass pipe on the corner of Northwest 4th Avenue and Glisan Street in Portland’s Old Town in December.

It was one man’s third hit that morning. He says he smokes meth 15 times a day.

“I couldn’t handle being out on the streets without drugs. It would drive me nuts,” he asserted, according to KGW8.

The man’s been addicted to drugs, including heroin and methamphetamine, for more than 40 years. He claims it’s incredibly easy to get drugs on the streets of Portland.

“There have been times where I haven’t had money for three weeks and I still get high every day,” he noted.

“The type of methamphetamine he was smoking is known as P2P meth. It’s a smaller, more potent, and highly addictive type of meth that’s becoming one of the leading drugs on Portland’s streets. Research shows that it’s causing an increase in overdose deaths. According to city data, drug overdoses among homeless people in Portland increased 94% between 2019 and 2021,” KGW8 reported.

“Many of those overdoses are caused by opioids, particularly fentanyl. But an increasing share are caused by meth,” the outlet concluded.
