Yesterday afternoon, Deschutes County sheriff's deputies arrested six Bend residents, many of them on suspicion of possession or delivery of heroin.
The six, three women and three men, were all between the ages of 19 and 22 and were arrested as part of an ongoing investigation into what deputies are calling "street level sales" of heroin. The arrests took place at two different homes in the city, one on the north end and another in southwest Bend.
Here's the saddest part of it all -- not that heroin slanging on our streets isn't sad enough on its own -- some of the charges include "endangering the welfare of a minor child." That means there were probably kids around heroin and/or other drugs. Yuck.
