GRAND RONDE -- Three people were arrested and guns and drugs seized on Thursday in two counties following a bust by the Polk Inter-agency Narcotics Team (POINT).

Investigators served a warrant at a residence at 25620 Yamhill River Road in Grand Ronde in response to complaints of drug activity, said Polk County Sheriff's Sgt. Mark Garton.

Officials seized more than 7 grams of methamphetamine, a small amount of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and packaging material.

Donald Ray Riley, 42, and Jamie Jo Tompkins, 41, were taken into custody and charged with possession of a controlled substance and unlawful delivery of a controlled substance. Tompkins was also charged with unlawful manufacturing of a controlled substance.

POINT determined that the narcotics in Grand Ronde were being supplied from a home in the city of Jefferson, Garton said.

A search warrant served there later that evening resulted in the arrest of Lynn Michele Lovejoy, 64, a convicted felon, for unlawful delivery of a controlled substance.

Investigators seized 4 grams of methamphetamine, 14 grams of marijuana, prescription medication, firearms and body armor at her residence.

All three individuals arrested are lodged in Polk County Jail.
