JACKSON COUNTY, Ore. — Deputies had a "busy weekend" after recovering a stolen car containing a loaded handgun and drugs, stopping a man with a car filled with marijuana, and bringing in a robbery suspect who has been at large for nearly a month.

According to JCSO, the eventful weekend began on Saturday morning when deputies arrested 25-year-old Jaimey Scott Faber and 26-year-old Ashley Nicole DeLong at a house in the 1400-Block of S Obenchain Road for outstanding warrants.

During the search of the property, JCSO says that deputies found "a Mercedes-Benz C300 that had been reported stolen in Seaside, a loaded handgun, and drugs." Faber and DeLong were both lodged in jail on several charges.

Later that same day, a deputy pulled over a car in Central Point — finding it to be "full of marijuana - literally," according to JCSO. The deputy pulled 42 pounds from the cab and trunk of the car during the resulting search.

The driver, 39-year-old Andrew William Long, was arrested for felony possession of marijuana.

"For reference, the limit for personal possession of recreational marijuana is eight OUNCES – or one ounce in a public place," JCSO said in a Facebook post. Long was also cited for driving uninsured and with a suspended license.

On Sunday, deputies also arrested the suspect believed to have robbed a man using a "cattle prod" in early October. [CLICK HERE for the full story]

Jackson County search and rescue staff also hosted a three-day Wide Area Search training for the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service, followed by an ATV training class, and topped off by assisting Medford Police in a search on Roxy Ann Peak for a lost hiker. The hiker had lost her way in the Dry Creek drainage after dark, but was found and returned to her vehicle safely.
