On Wednesday January 15, 2014, at approximately 4:00 p.m., Central Precinct officers arrested a 32-year-old man on several drug charges and seized a significant amount of narcotics.
32-year-old Omar Ayala-Luevano was contacted and arrested near Northwest Broadway and Burnside Street. Central Precinct officers were familiar with Ayala-Luevano as he was previously arrested on October 18, 2013 at Southwest 12th Avenue and Columbia Street on several drug-related charges.
Recovered from Ayala-Luevano after his arrest on Wednesday were nearly four ounces of heroin and cocaine along with $720 cash.
Investigators believe that this heroin was intended for distribution in Portland and could have had devastating effects on drug addicts.
Ayala-Luevano was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on charges of Delivery and Possession of Heroin and Delivery and Possession of Cocaine.
