Detectives with the Clark-Vancouver Regional Drug Task Force searched a home in Clark County’s Pleasant Highlands neighborhood Thursday morning and arrested three people.

About 5 a.m., the task force with the assistance of the Southwest Washington Regional SWAT team began searching the house at 6105 N.E. 124th St., which is down the street from Glenwood Community Church and Vancouver Fire Department’s Station 7.

During the raid, detectives seized a small amount of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. They arrested three people on suspicion of possessing methamphetamine: William P. Jorgenson, 62, Tammie L. Jacobson-Davis, 54, and Jim C. Stern, 63.

“In addition to securing evidence in this case, we hope to bring some much-needed relief to the residents of this neighborhood who have had to put up with this house for a long time,” said task force Cmdr. Mike Cooke in a press release.

“Because of the nature of our work, the neighbors in this area have not been privy to all of the efforts we’ve gone through to get to this point in the investigation.” Cooke said. “Unfortunately that’s created the impression that law enforcement was not doing anything about this house. We have, and today is the result of those efforts.”

County property records show the home is owned by Roy Steven Jorgenson.
