In the early hours of Wednesday, April 25, 2012, members of the Clackamas County SIU and CCITF served a warrant in the 11000 block of SE Harold in Portland, Oregon in relation to suspected drug trafficking.

Clackamas County investigators had been contacted by police in Oneida County, Wisconsin for assistance in a drug-related case they had uncovered.

Oneida County investigators were contacted by a local freight company reporting a suspicious package. Police canine handlers were called to the location. After the dog alerted to the presence of drugs on the crate, it was opened.

Inside the crate was $106,000, with a destination address in Clackamas County, Oregon. The package had been shipped by Barbara Elliott (pictured), age 63, of Wausau, Wisconsin (formerly of Portland) to her son, Jeremy T. Williams, age 40, of Portland.

Both mother and son have criminal histories of Distribution of a Controlled Substance (DCS).

During the search warrant, SIU/CCITF investigators located an indoor marijuana grow operation, $12,000 in cash and 24 pounds of packaged marijuana.

The suspect, Jeremy Williams, indicated to investigators that he grew the marijuana at his house and sold it to his mother in Wisconsin because it fetched a higher price. It is believed that Barbara Elliott sells the marijuana in Wisconsin.

Charges of DCS, MCS, and PCS Marijuana, as well as Money Laundering will be submitted to the District Attorney's Office for Jeremy Williams.
