Gerald Matthew Wiese was also arrested after he broke into Marsh’s storage unit. Inside was cocaine, meth, and heroin. Police also seized 18 pistols, semi-automatic weapons, and rifles. He’s being held on $250,000 bail for drug possession and controlled substances.

Police also linked Marsh to two other storage lockers containing 6 pounds of methamphetamine, over 2 pounds of heroin, and 5 ounces of cocaine.

Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Roberts said, “everyone here at the sheriff’s office was deeply disappointed by the news that a former employee of this organization made the choice to violate the laws that all of us are sworn to uphold.”
