MEDFORD, Ore. – A Medford man suspected of selling drugs near a school is facing a list of charges.
Wednesday morning’s arrest comes after a two month investigation by the Medford Area Drug And Gang Enforcement Agency.
They’ve kept a close eye on 27-year-old Michael Cyrus and early Wednesday morning, officers served a search warrant at Cyrus’ home on the 500 block of Western Avenue. They found several pounds of methamphetamine, scales and packaging material.
“We have no doubt that he was working with somebody else, he was getting his drugs from somebody and we’ll continue to investigate that,” said MADGE Sgt. Kevin Walruff
During that drug bust, Cyrus’ 2-month-old child was in the home. Currently the Department of Human Services is taking care of the girl. Cyrus is lodged at the Jackson County Jail on a little over a million dollars bail.
Cyrus has been charged with unlawful possession of meth, as well as delivery and manufacturing of methamphetamine within 1,000 feet of a school, and also first degree child neglect.
