A newspaper report says more than 300 law enforcement officers have arrested dozens of people in raids described as an effort to dismantle a drug and weapons distribution ring uncovered after a double killing last year in Klamath County.
The Klamath Falls Herald and News reports the raids began about 3 a.m. Wednesday, as officers used flash-bang grenades and forced entries to make arrests.
By 7 a.m. dozens of people were in custody. The county jail planned to open an unused wing to house them.
Officers came from local, state and federal agencies.
Last fall, two Californians were found shot to death near Bonanza, east of Klamath Falls. Initially, they were reported to have gone there to buy hay and a horse. Prosecutors later said they were after drugs.
