area residence this week and arrested Adam Scroggins, 38, on charges of running

associates." McMinnville detectives say they recovered stolen property worth
about $5,000. They added that they also discovered numerous items of drug paraphrenalia and a small amount of illegal drugs found during the search. No
other details were released.
