Four Jailed after MADGE Raid
Wednesday morning the Medford Area Drug & Gang Enforcement team served a search warrant in the 200 block of North Columbus. The warrant was a result of numerous complaints and a month long investigation into drug trafficking from the residence.
Upon knocking and announcing official presence at the front door, several subjects ran out the back and were stopped by waiting officers. Eleven people were detained upon entering
the residence. Four subjects were arrested on various drug charges as well as a probation violation.
A search of the residence resulted in the seizure of a little over a quarter ounce of methamphetamine, scales, packaging and over $600 in cash. The investigation continues to identify additional evidence and suspects.
Lodged into the Jackson County Jail were Matthew Charles Odell, 32, Jamie Erica Orr, 24, and Jose De Jesus Lomeli, 30, all on various drug charges. Kristopher Ian Simpson, 39, was jailed for burglary one and a probation violation.
