McMillen and Peterson live at the Johnson Street address. Coker resides in Southeast McMinnville and Taylor is from Eugene.

There was one child present in the residence when the search warrant was served, a girl under 10 years old, according to Capt. Tim Symons of the McMinnville police. A detective was working Wednesday night on placing the child with a relative or in the custody of the state Department of Human Services.

Symons said investigators were “sifting through evidence” throughout the day.

The drug team was assisted by sheriff’s deputies and McMinnville police in serving the warrant, taking the suspects into custody and thoroughly searching the house. Traffic was detoured while law enforcement personnel were on scene.
