Bend drugged-driving stop leads to motel raid, 3 arrests

Meth seized from driver's car, motel room

BEND, Ore. - A traffic stop near a northwest Bend motel early Thursday morning led to the arrest of a Bend woman on drugged-driving charges, the seizure of methamphetamine, a raid on her motel room and the arrest of two homeless men, police said.

A Bend officer stopped a car driven by Hara Lim, 44, near the Shilo Inn at 3015 O.B. Riley Road, said police Lt. Clint Burleigh.

While talking with Lim, the officer believed she was under the influence of drugs and conducted a DUII investigation, Burleigh said. A search of her car turned up nearly 100 grams of suspected methamphetamine, as well as several items used to sell and make the drug and several suspected counterfeit $20 bills.

Investigating officers learned Lim was staying at the motel and applied for a search warrant for her room, Burleigh said.

As they did so, they noticed a man leaving the room where she was believed to be staying. Jared Michael Reed, 40, was found to possess a “user amount” of meth, the lieutenant said in a news release.

Officers served the search warrant for Lim’s room around 5:30 a.m. James Dyer, 43, was found inside the room, along with  “commercial amounts” of meth, Burleigh said.

Lim remained jailed Thursday evening, held on $70,000 bail and facing charges of conspiracy to make, distribute and possess meth, as well as meth possession and manufacture, DUII (controlled substance) and criminal possession of a forged instrument.

Dyer was held on $55,000 bail, facing drug conspiracy, manufacture, distribution and possession charges. Reed was held on $5,000 bail on a meth possession charge.
