Heroin bust near school district offices

Public safety — Two Newberg residents charged with two accounts of drug distribution and possession, lodged in Yamhill County


A pair of Newberg men are lodged in the Yamhill County jail following a search of their Sixth Street home in January.

The two men — Joshua Iam Mulbreght, 23 and Evan Carl Puckett, 18 — were arrested Jan. 24, after Newberg-Dundee police searched their home at 715 E. Sixth St.

According to a release from the NDPD, officers found heroin, scales, packaging material, a smoking pipe, records of drug sales, $425 in cash and equipment to sell heroin and methamphetamine.

Mulbreght and Puckett remain in jail on charges of possession and distribution of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school. The home is across Sixth Street from the headquarters of the Newberg School District and about a half-block away from Edwards Elementary School.
