Drug Cartels Set Up Shop in Oregon

Mexican drug cartels have infiltrated Oregon, and their reach has extended throughout the Northwest. Federal law enforcement have said that at least 69 drug trafficking organizations operate in the state. These cartels control nearly every ounce of heroin, methamphetamine and cocaine flowing into the region.

The violence includes the unsolved 2011 death of a Canby man who police believe was killed by a bomb intended for another person connected to a cartel drug case. Police  also believe a cartel is behind a 2012 Salem roadside execution, the shooting of two California men found buried near Klamath Falls and a 2007 hit in which a trafficker and four friends were lined up on the floor of a Washington state rental home and shot in the head.
