PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Deputies said a suspect was caught trying to destroy evidence as part of an investigation that led to the seizure of six pounds of methamphetamine and five pounds of cocaine.

The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office Special Investigation Unit executed a search warrant at an apartment on the 13000 block of Northeast Sandy Boulevard on Dec. 17.

The sheriff's office said they were looking for 41-year-old Demetreas Waiter.

During the search of the apartment, investigators said they located and seized six pounds of meth, two kilos of cocaine, drugs scales, packaging and drug records, along with two guns, including one that was reported as stolen.

More than $5,600 in cash was also seized from the apartment.

One person in the home was interviewed and released.

Waiter was located later in the day at a relative's home in Troutdale. Deputies and U.S. Marshals took him into custody. Investigators said he was attempting to destroy evidence when he was caught.

Investigators obtained a search warrant for the Troutdale home and said an additional half-pound of cocaine was located, along with 2.5 ounces of crack cocaine, three guns, packaging material and empty kilo wrappers.

Waiter was booked in the Multnomah County Jail on a probation violation. Deputies said additional charges are expected as the investigation continues.
