Six firearms, drugs and a stolen motorcycle seized during La Pine drug bust

One woman was arrested and a man was cited after authorities executed a search warrant on a La Pine home last week, according to a press release from the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO).

On Thursday, May 18, detectives from DCSO’s Street Crimes Unit, the Central Oregon Drug Enforcement Team and DCSO patrol deputies served a warrant at a home in the 16000 block of Big Meadow Dr. in La Pine, after citizens in the area complained about suspected drug activity.

An investigation determined Sharryl Anderson, 51, and Bob Lauber, 68, both of La Pine, had been involved in selling drugs out of the location.

As the search warrant was being executed, deputies contacted Lauber, and seized over an ounce of methamphetamine, a user amount of heroin, six firearms and a Honda motorcycle that had been stolen from the Vancouver, Wash. area.

Sharryl Anderson, 51, of La Pine, was arrested during a May 18, 2017 drug bust, and faces charges of possession and delivery of methamphetamine, possession of heroin, possession of a stolen vehicle, and obliteration or change of serial number on a firearm, and six counts of felon in possession of a firearm.

One of the seized firearms had been stolen recently during a burglary in Bend, and the serial number had been obliterated. Anderson is prohibited from possessing firearms, as she is a convicted felon.

Lauber was cited in lieu of custody, and Anderson was already lodged in Deschutes County Jail on previous charges.

Both face charges of possession and delivery of methamphetamine, possession of heroin, possession of a stolen vehicle, and obliteration or change of serial number on a firearm.

Anderson also faces six counts of felon in possession of a firearm.
