Release Date:

Members of the Blue Mountain Narcotics Enforcement Team (BENT) executed a search warrant today
around noon at 1030 W. Madrona Ave in Hermiston. The search warrant came as a result of complaints
received about suspicious activity at the residence.

Those arrested were:

Brent D. Dickinson, 39 years of age of 1030 W. Madrona Ave, Hermiston. Dickinson was charged with
Unlawful Possession of Methamphetamine, Unlawful Delivery of Methamphetamine, Endangering the
Welfare of a Minor, and Frequenting/Maintaining a Place where Controlled Substances are Used. Dickinson also had an arrest warrant out of Hermiston Municipal Court for Failure to Appear. He was lodged at the Umatilla County Jail in Pendleton.

Alyshia B. Bowe, 34 years of age of 1030 W. Madrona Ave, Hermiston. Bowe was charged with Unlawful Possession of Methamphetamine, Unlawful Delivery of Methamphetamine, Endangering the Welfare of a Minor, and Frequenting/Maintaining a Place where Controlled Substances are Used. She was also lodged at the Umatilla County Jail in Pendleton.

Approximately 2 grams of suspected methamphetamine, packaging materials, and scales were seized.

The positive relationship between the Hermiston Police Department and BENT continues to evolve. BENT which is comprised of members from surrounding agencies, are very receptive to the needs and wants of our citizens in addition to those in Umatilla and Morrow counties.

Our detective assigned to that unit was instrumental in developing information to apply for and obtain a
search warrant. Though BENT is actively involved in larger scale operations, their ability to positively
impact a neighborhood in our community is a testament to their overall mission.
