$100k In Illegal Pot Seized From Redmond Home

REDMOND, OR -- A Redmond man was arrested Tuesday on multiple drug and weapons charges, and detectives say they seized illegal marijuana from his home worth about $100,000. It was the result of a long-term investigation into Christopher Putnam by the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office Illegal Marijuana Market Enforement (DCIMME) team.

Putnam was pulled over Tuesday morning. Detectives then executed a search warrant at his home on SW 77th Street. In addition to the 152 pounds of illegal pot, investigators say they also found an AR-15, two handguns and $10,000 cash. The marijuana was pre-packaged, and detectives say it was destined for the black market.

Putnam made his first court appearance Wednesday.
