DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ore. -- A Canyonville man is in jail after a search of his home allegedly turned up drugs.
A search warrant was served on the home of Brett William Cashman, 48, on May 28.
Originally, police were looking for some reportedly stolen jewelry. On May 15, about $900 dollars worth of jewelry was reported to be taken from a Myrtle Creek residence.
It had been sold to a shop in Canyonville, and Sheriff's deputies were able to trace it to Cashman.
It turns out the jewelry wasn't actually stolen.
According to the Sheriff's office, the male "victim" had actually sold the goods to Cashman, and when his wife noticed it was missing, the man allegedly told her that someone must have stolen it, so the women filed the report.
Though the jewelry wasn't taken illegally, the drugs found in his house landed Cashman behind bars.
He was charged with unlawful manufacture and possession of both methamphetamine and marijuana.
Cashman is currently being held at the Douglas County jail on $900,000 bail.
