Jaime France was one of three people arrested on methamphetamine charges, but the more serious crimes in the case, which dates back to June of this year, involve Erin and Jarrod Wells. Each of them face child neglect charges because two young boys, ages 4 and 7, were home at the time a search warrant was served.

Police said they found heroin and methamphetamine strewn about the home and within easy reach of the two boys at the home on Saundra Lee Way. They also found garbage stacked, a burned mattress, numerous hand-held torches and generally chaotic conditions, officers said.

Erin Wells was charged with possession of methamphetamine and heroin, in addition to child neglect following a police drug raid in Keizer, Oregon.

Erin Wells and the two children were inside the home when police arrived, but Jarrod Wells was not.

That led police to track him down at the Rodeway Inn on Astoria Way in Salem, where he was staying with France.

Inside that motel room, police said they found a few grams of heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine, as well as records of drug sales.

France, who formerly lived in Redmond, faces charges of possession of meth, possession of heroin and possession of suboxene.

Jarrod Wells was charged with a variety of drug-related charges including delivery of methamphetamine within 1,000 feet of a school. He was arrested following a police drug raid in Keizer, Oregon.

    Drug wars. Because people sitting in a hotel room wasting their life away by getting messed up causes so much harm to others and themselves… lock em up and ruin their lives even more! What a waste of taxpayer dollars.

    Timmiy with the tiny mind there you go again knocking women. We are still waiting for you to tell us why you hate women. No not all women are victims like your mother was. Anybody that give birth to someone like you really is a victim.
