Portland Police Seize 35 Guns During Heroin Bust

Portland police say they’ve seized 35 firearms during a heroin bust, and they’re checking serial numbers to determine if they are stolen.

The police said they arrested two people Wednesday on drug charges: 30-year-old Joshua Michael Buettner and 26-year-old Jehna Gowanlock.

A police spokesman said the amount of weaponry was unusual. It included rifles and handguns. Police said they also seized ammunition and two safes.

Police said they’d begun an investigation in January and found Buettner on Wednesday with an ounce of heroin and a handgun.
