MADRAS, Ore. -

A drug raid Thursday afternoon on a Madras residence led to the arrest of a 45-year-old woman, accused of trafficking in methamphetamine in Jefferson County, authorities said.

Central Oregon Drug Enforcement Team detectives, assisted by Jefferson County sheriff’s deputies and Warm Springs tribal police, executed a search warrant around 2:15 p.m. at 1520 SW Hwy. 97, No. 7, officials said.
