GRANTS PASS, Ore. — A stakeout at a suspected drug house and the use of a K9 led officers with Rogue Area Drug Enforcement (RADE) to arrest a man for drug possession and intent to distribute, according to the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety (GPDPS).
The RADE detectives were outside of a "known drug residence" in northeast Grants Pass on Wednesday evening around 6 p.m. when a man pulled away from the house in his car.
Performing a traffic stop, Officer Gasperson and his K9 partner Match approached the vehicle — with Match soon giving a "positive" alert.
During a resulting search of the vehicle, GPDPS said that the detectives found more than a half-ounce of heroin, cocaine, prescription Xanax, digital scales, packaging material and more than $4,000 in cash.
The officers took the driver, 30-year-old Anthony C. Morrison, into custody — lodging him on heroin possession and distribution charges.
"More charges are expected to be filed by the Josephine County DA's Office," GPDPS said.
