Eight people are facing charges after an early morning raid on East Burnside Wednesday.
Police fired tear gas into a triplex at 10995 E. Burnside Rd. at around 3 a.m. Search warrants were served at two apartment units, and 10 people were initially taken into custody.
It was part of a month-long investigation by The Special Investigations Unit of the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office into an alleged drug dealing operation.
Police used flashbangs and loud hailed the people who initially refused to come out of the triplex Wednesday.
Officers then fired tear gas into the units to flush out the people inside. Several people came out and surrendered, officers said, and one person was found hiding in an attic.
During the subsequent search, police said six guns were found and seized, including three semi-automatics and two revolvers, along with a rifle, drug scales, packing materials, drug records and approximately 1.5 ounces of methamphetamine packaged for street sales.
Those arrested were:
Joseph Sparks, 35, on a federal warrant for a parole violation and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Anthony Staggs, 42, on a probation violation and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Kenneth Wellman Jr., 48, on a probation violation.
Jimmy Phillips, 45, on a probation violation.
Jesse Phillips, 34, on a parole violation.
Sarah Dunn, 32, for an outstanding warrant related to possession of meth.
Danielle Palen, 22, for an outstanding warrant on theft charges.
Jamie Coleman, 43, for felony failing to register as a sex offender.
Two other women were interviewed at the scene and released. One woman was transported to the hospital for an evaluation of an eye irritation.
Both addresses involved in this case have been identified as a central location and gathering place for known white supremacist gang members in the EK and FBK groups, according to police.
The investigation is continuing and additional charges are expected, officers said.
