Parole Violation Leads to Drug Bust
While assisting on a parole and probation visit Thursday, a Jackson county deputy made contact with a second individual, identified as Joel Dixon, 47, attempting to hide.
Probation officers and the deputy were in the residence of David Farmer, 37, in the 100 block of Clover Lane in Medford, when Dixon was discovered. Dixon had dropped a backpack that was unzipped and next to the backpack was a large bag of dried marijuana and in plain view were several plastic baggies containing what was determined to be methamphetamine.
A search of the backpack additionally revealed a bag of oxycodone and a loaded magazine for a Colt .380. No gun was found.
The Sheriff’s office sieved 21 ounces of meth, 260 grams of marijuana, 19 oxycodone pills and the magazine.
Farmer was arrested on a parole violation while Dixon faces a myriad of charges including a parole violation. His total bail is over one million dollars.
