Two men are accused of dealing heroin near a school in Tillamook.

Jeffrey Watts, 23, a transient staying in Tillamook, and his brother Zachary Watts, 26, of Gresham, were arrested Wednesday on Evergreen Drive near Alder Street.

That area is within 1,000 feet of Tillamook Junior High School.

Investigators said both suspects were in possession of heroin when they were contacted by detectives in the middle of the day near the school. They had around 1.5 grams of heroin packaged in several separate bindles, according to deputies.

Tillamook County Narcotics Team detectives said they have been seeing a major increase in heroin use in Tillamook County, especially among younger people.
