A man was arrested in the Home Depot parking lot at Mall 205 with 20 kilos of methamphetamine and 4 kilos of heroin, according to the Clackamas County Interagency Task Force.

The arrest of Jose Luis Poitras, 22, was the culmination of a six-month investigation.

Task force members, with the help of Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Grimm, arrested Poitras on Tuesday.

After Poitras was arrested, two locations were searched in Vancouver with the assistance of the Clark-Vancouver Regional Drug Task Force.

Those searches led to the seizure of almost $10,000 in cash and evidence of meth and heroin processing, according to investigators.

Poitras was booked into the Clackamas County Jail on charges of unlawful distribution of meth and heroin. His bail was set at $500,000.
