Deputies Snared Woman on MPD Warrant after Wednesday Incident in Hugo

The Josephine County Sheriff's Office arrested a woman on an outstanding warrant yesterday after a disturbance in the Hugo area.

The Sheriff's Office reports deputies responded to the incident in the 600-block of Oxyoke Road on Wednesday around 12:30 p.m..

Deputies said the property owner called 9-1-1 to report that he had just arrived at his home and he was being harassed by a female subject who was squatting on his place. The caller advised that he sprayed her with a hose and she responded by threatening him and throwing rocks at his friend. There were no injuries reported.

Upon arrival, deputies contacted the 50-year-old woman and discovered that she was wanted on a Medford Police Department warrant for Probation Violation related to a previous arrest for Unlawful Possession of Methamphetamine. She was placed into custody and lodged without bail at the Josephine County Jail.

The reporting party was advised not to go into the woman's living area while she was gone and a friend made arrangements to pick up her dog.
