SALEM, OR (KPTV) -

Three men are facing drug charges after a long-term investigation into the distribution of methamphetamine involving a Salem company.

Warrants were served Wednesday at two Platinum Spa Auto Detail locations in Salem, along with a home on Woodwind Court in Keizer.

In 2010, Keizer police began investigating information that the owner of Platinum Spa Auto Detail, Cesar Leon-Barbosa, 28, of Keizer, was selling meth from his businesses with the help of his brother, Jesus Leon-Barbosa, 35.

Investigators said more than 1 1/2 pounds of meth was found, along with 1 1/2 ounces of cocaine, scales and more than $67,000 in cash. The street value of the drugs is $25,000, according to police.

Samuel DeJesus Diaz-Zermeno, 48, was contacted as part of the investigation Wednesday and detectives said he was in possession of a pound of methamphetamine.

All three men are facing charges of unlawful possession and delivery of methamphetamine.

Cesar Leon-Barbosa's bail is set the highest of the three suspects at more than $2.6 million.
