DINT Bust Douglas Co., March 5

On Friday, March 1st, 2024, detectives with the Douglas Interagency Narcotics Team (DINT) wrapped up a months long investigation that began in early December. The investigation focused on the alleged sales of methamphetamine by 40 year old Kyle Vatland, of Idleyld Park. Over the course of the investigation detectives were able to generate evidence of multiple sales of methamphetamine by Vatland, all occurring at various locations in the Glide area. On Friday, March 1st, detectives concluded the investigation by arresting Vatland during a traffic stop in the 20,000 block of N. Umpqua Hwy in Glide, with the help of a deputy from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office. Vatland was taken into custody without incident and detectives immediately executed a search warrant on Vatland’s vehicle. Upon searching the vehicle detectives located approximately 499 grams of suspected methamphetamine, and a loaded 9mm handgun. Detectives followed up with a search warrant at Vatland’s residence where more evidence was located. Vatland was lodged at the Douglas County Jail where he was charged with multiple crimes resulting from each sale he is alleged to have made during the course of this investigation, as well as the items found when he was arrested. The incidents occurred at multiple different dates, times, and locations around the Glide area. Some of the incidents occurred in close proximity to Glide area schools, though never on any school campuses. When a person delivers or manufactures controlled substances in close proximity to a school, additional charges can be levied, as happened in this case. The charges are as follows: Unlawful Possession of Methamphetamine (5 counts); Unlawful Delivery of Methamphetamine (5 counts); Unlawful Delivery of Methamphetamine with 1,000′ of a School (2 counts); Unlawful Manufacture of Methamphetamine; Unlawful Possession of a Firearm; Attempt to Commit Class B Felony (Delivery of Methamphetamine). The DINT team is a multi-jurisdictional narcotics task force that identifies, disrupts, and dismantles local, multi-state, and international drug trafficking organizations using an intelligence-driven, multi-agency, prosecutor-supported approach. DINT is supported by the Oregon-Idaho High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) and is composed of members from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Roseburg Police Department, Oregon State Police, Bureau of Land Management, and the Douglas County District Attorney’s Office. The Oregon-Idaho HIDTA program is an Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) sponsored counterdrug grant program that coordinates with and provides funding resources to multi-agency drug enforcement initiatives, including DINT.
