GRANTS PASS, Ore. — Police and detectives with the Rogue Area Drug Enforcement (RADE) task force took two men into custody on Monday for the sale and delivery of nearly a half-pound of methamphetamine, according to a statement from RADE.

RADE detectives and officers with the Grants Pass police pulled over 27-year-old David Macy around 8 p.m. on Monday, finding that he was carrying nearly a half-pound of meth. They believe that Macy intended to sell the meth for cash.

The investigation then led RADE to the home of 38-year-old Jeremy Shafer, who they believe delivered the meth to Macy. Shafer was also found in possession of heroin, according to RADE. Detectives recovered more meth and over $20,000 linked to drug sales during their searches.

Both men were taken into custody and charged with Delivery of Methamphetamine and Possession of Methamphetamine. Macy received a Probation Violation Detainer as well, while Shafer earned a Possession of Heroin charge.

RADE says that the investigation is ongoing and anyone with information or questions can email RADE@grantspassoregon.gov
