SEASIDE — A Seaside man was arrested on several charges involving heroin, methamphetamine and firearms.

Travis David Carow, 35, of Seaside, was arrested March 26 by detectives from the Clatsop County Interagency Narcotics Team and by Seaside police officers.

He was charged with delivery of a controlled substance heroin, methamphetamine and marijuana; possession of a controlled substance heroin, methamphetamine and marijuana; felon in possession of a firearm; frequenting a place where drugs are sold; and endangering the welfare of a minor.

Carow was transported to the Clatsop County Jail, and the case was sent to the district attorney.

The Oregon Department of Human Services was called, and steps were taken to ensure the safety of the children at the residence.

An investigation of Carow began when narcotics team detectives learned from several sources that he was an alleged dealer of large amounts of heroin and methamphetamine throughout Clatsop County.

The detectives also learned that heroin was being used and sold in front of Carow’s young children. As the investigation continued, the detectives were granted several search warrants.

On March 26, the detectives and Seaside police officers located Carow, took him into custody and executed the search warrants.

While at Carow’s residence in the 300 block of 15th Avenue, the detectives encountered Carow’s girlfriend, Jena Marie Cooke, 33, and two children.

During the search of his apartment and vehicle, the detectives found what they termed as a “substantial” amount of pre-packaged heroin, pre-packaged marijuana, methamphetamine, two firearms, a large sum of U.S. currency, multiple digital scales, drug packaging material, drug paraphernalia and drug transaction records.

Detectives also discovered more than 100 different kinds of prescription pills, ranging from methadone, hydrocodone and amphetamines.
