Two men, including one from California, are facing drug charges after deputies said they found evidence of the men making a marijuana transaction.
According to the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office, John Lee Pairrett of Lincoln County and Jamie Dombro of Van Muys, Calif., are both facing charges after they were arrested on Tuesday.
Police said they received an anonymous tip in May that Pairrett was buying and selling large amounts of marijuana through the mail at his home on the 200 block of Oak Bend Drive in Lincoln County.
The release said narcotics investigators began weeks of surveillance. On June 21, they saw a man — later identified as Jamie Dombro — driving a car with Arizona plates arrive at Pairret’s home on the 200 block of Oak Bend Drive.
When Donbro left the home, investigators pulled him over and searched him with a drug sniffing dog. According to the release, they found $5,000 cash and a $5,000 check from Parret to Dombro. While searching his car, they found a case that the drug sniffing dog identified as positive for marijuana.
After arresting Dombro, investigators went to talk with Pairrett at his home. After getting a search warrant, they searched the house, where they found three trash bags of “high-grade marijuana” and several guns.
Deputies said Pairret is a convicted felon with previous drug convictions.
Pairrett was charged with possession with the intent to distribute a controlled substance and unlawful possession of a firearm. He is being held on a $100,000, cash-only bond.
Dombro was charged with distribution of a controlled substance and is being held on a $75,000, cash-only bond.
