After several weeks of surveillance, a 39-year-old Redmond man was arrested Dec. 18 and faces several charges related to allegedly making and selling methamphetamine, according to a Redmond Police news release.

Police found 125 grams of meth, as well as a loaded handgun, $625 in cash, drug packaging materials and stolen property when they executed a search warrant at the home of Dustin Steers, 39, in the 2300 block of W Antler Avenue, which is within 1,000 feet of the Redmond Early Learning Center and Redmond Proficiency Academy Middle School, and is across the street from Redmond High’s sports practice fields, police said.

Steers was arrested and faces charges of unlawful possession, manufacturing and delivery of meth, all within 1,000 feet of a school, police said.

Police arrested Alicia Kenney, 31, of the Portland area, on a second-degree theft by receiving charge after finding an allegedly stolen tablet computer in her possession, police said.
