Yesterday afternoon (February 13, 2013), the Clackamas County Inter-agency Task Force (CCITF) executed a search warrant at a residence in Boring, Oregon, in rural Clackamas County. The search resulted in the seizure of 84 marijuana plants, drug proceeds, two stolen guns and the arrest of Kevin Tamar Davis, a suspect wanted in Kansas.

Kevin Tamar Davis -- age 37, of Tennessee -- was on the run from Sedgwick County, Kansas, where he was wanted for Aggravated Indecent Liberties with a Child and listed as one of Sedgwick County's Most Wanted.

The CCITF -- acting on an anonymous tip -- conducted a criminal investigation that led to the execution of a search warrant yesterday at a residence outside the city of Boring. Investigators found an elaborate video surveillance system protecting an illegal Marijuana growing operation.

Kevin Davis was found hiding in a crawlspace and was arrested without incident.

The search of the house revealed 84 marijuana plants estimated at over $250,000 in street value. Two stolen pistols were also recovered from the house and an undisclosed amount of cash.

Mr. Davis was booked at the Clackamas County Jail on felony drug charges -- and may later be extradited back to Wichita, Kansas for charges of Aggravated Indecent Liberties with a Child.
