CLACKAMAS COUNTY, OR (KPTV) -

A three-month investigation led deputies to more than 130 pounds of marijuana and the arrests of a father and son in Estacada.

The case began on July 13, 2013, when an employee at Con-way trucking in Clackamas called the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office to report a suspicious pallet of freight. The employee had been trained to spot packages that may contain illegal controlled substances, and noted this freight was over-packaged.

A K-9 named Kilo assisted in the investigation and alerted on the pallet. A search warrant was obtained, the pallet was opened and 39 pounds of marijuana was discovered.

Investigators said the pallet was paid for by Clark McNutt, 60, of Estacada. It was to be shipped to New York, where McNutt planned to pick it up, according to deputies.

The Clackamas County Interagency Task Force took over the case and conducted an in-depth investigation.

On Monday, a search warrant was served at a home on Delph Ridge Road in Estacada. The raid led to the discovery of more than 130 pounds of dried marijuana, 229 plants, one shotgun, two rifles and two handguns.

McNutt and his son, Timothy McNutt, 24, of Estacada, were arrested. They each face charges of manufacturing, distributing and possession of marijuana. Their bail was set at $100,000 each.
