Five people were arrested Tuesday during a police raid of a Southeast Portland home linked to a drug investigation.

Investigators seized five firearms, $14,000, two ounces of meth, as well as state IDs, driver’s licenses and passports that were either stolen or fake, according to Lt. Steve Alexander, a Multnomah County sheriff’s spokesman.

The home, in the 3100 block of Southeast 131st Avenue, had several surveillance cameras, which were shot out by Portland SERT officers, Alexander said. A search warrant was issued at the home after several complaints from neighbors.

Investigators, who were from the Multnomah County sheriff’s special investigations unit and the Portland Police Bureau’s special emergency response team, arrested John H. Jeska, 41, of Portland on allegations of possessing methamphetamine and felon in possession of a firearm; Carey A. Dedolph, 39, of Portland on accusations of possessing and delivering meth; and Hugh T. Shepard, 54, of Portland on suspicion of possessing heroin.

Ruby Johnson, 32, of Portland and Crystal L. Tuell, 31, of Portland were arrested on outstanding warrants.
