Tickets to Super Bowl among seizures in drug bust

PORTLAND, Ore. — Portland police have seized three tickets to Sunday’s Super Bowl among the items recovered in a series of raids focusing on a marijuana-distribution operation.

Portland police say they’re still seeking the whereabouts of 42-year-old Matthew Parker and his son, 19-year-old Dreyson Parker.

Police arrested 39-year-old Kao Choy Saechao at Portland International Airport on Friday. That began a trail of search warrants and raids at a Portland apartment, a Florida storage locker and Matthew Parker’s Gresham home.

In a Cadillac Escalade at Parker’s house, they found 212 pounds of marijuana and the football tickets.

The raid yielded a total of $350,000 seized, two SUVs, a small amount of steroids, mature marijuana plants, four rifles, two handguns and marijuana processing equipment.
