The execution of a felony fugitive warrant by authorities in Brookings Friday has so far resulted in three arrests.

At approximately 10:30 a.m. Friday, officers from several Oregon law enforcement agencies descended upon a home at 310 Mulberry Lane, said Lt. John Bishop of the Brookings Police Department.

The officers had in hand a fugitive warrant for narcotics to serve on Sean Patrick ONeill, 34, of the same address. He is presently on probation in Oregon and on parole in California. He was taken immediately into custody, Bishop said.

The two other men arrested at the house were Steven Mark Pascoe, 35, who lives out of the area, and Michael Doegall, 44, of Brookings. As of late Friday, Bishop did not know what the three men were charged with.

A 13-year-old girl found at the house was turned over to the states Services to Children and Family Department, Bishop said.

A search of the residence was conducted and a portable boxed methamphetamine lab was discovered in a storage shed located just inside a wood fence in the backyard, he said.

Additionally, an undisclosed amount of drugs, mostly meth, approximately $1,000 and weapons were also found on the premises, Bishop said.

The arrests and search were the result of an ongoing investigation, he said. Officers from the Brookings Police Department, Curry County Probation and Parole, Curry County Sheriffs Office, Oregon State Police and SCINT (South Coast Interagency Narcotics Team) were involved in Fridays action.
