Couple charged with selling morphine

A Baker City couple have been charged with selling prescription morphine from their home near Brooklyn Elementary School.

Dorla Lynn Doud, 40, of 1930 Clifford St., was arrested Tuesday on a Baker County Circuit Court warrant charging her with three counts of delivering a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school, four counts of possessing a controlled substance and four counts of first-degree child neglect. She was taken into custody by Oregon State Police at 4:20 p.m. Tuesday.

The investigation, conducted by members of the Baker County Drug Enforcement Team, began about two months ago, said Oregon State Police Sgt. Ty Duby.

Doud and Charles Edward Patrick Brown, 50, also of 1930 Clifford St., are accused of selling the prescription morphine to undercover officers, Duby said. Brown has been held at the Baker County Jail on allegations of violating his post-prison supervision since Dec. 2.

Brown, who has a prescription for morphine, was charged at the jail on Jan. 28 with three counts of delivering a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school and four counts of first-degree child neglect in connection with the investigation involving the sale of the prescription morphine, Duby said.

The evidence was considered by a grand jury, which indicted Brown and Doud on the charges, Duby said.

The child neglect charges allege that children were in the home during the drug transactions, Duby said.

Sales of prescription medication such as morphine is a trend police are seeing nationwide, Duby said he learned during a national conference of the Association of State Drug Enforcement Agencies he attended recently at Nashville, Tenn.

“Prescription medication is the up-and-coming thing,” he said.
