In the 1980s, the Portland Police Department uncovered a massive drug conspiracy headed by a cocaine dealer named Jose “Pepe” Chavez. Police Sergeant Ray Tercek was part of what would become one of the largest drug trafficking conspiracy investigations in the nation, and he shares his experiences breaking the conspiracy and negotiating the politics of City Hall.
Ray Tercek, a twenty-six years veteran of the Portland Police Bureau, has published two memoirs documenting his experiences.
