PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Police on Thursday arrested a man who's suspected of dealing heroin out of bars around Portland.

Officers served a search warrant at the home of Neil Mackenzie Shaw, 36, in the 800 block of Northeast 22nd Avenue, where they seized heroin, $85,000 in cash, a 2008 Mercedes E63 AMG and a 2008 Subaru Forester.

Police said Shaw had about seven ounces of heroin in the home, which would provide about 1,000 individual doses. 

That much heroin would sell for more than $8,000 on the street.

Police said Shaw provided heroin to street-level dealers and also sold the drug out of bars in the downtown and north Portland areas.

Shaw was booked in the Multnomah County Jail on charges of manufacturing, delivery and possession of heroin, in addition to four misdemeanor drug charges.
