MEDFORD, Ore. — Investigators from the Medford Area Gang and Drug Enforcement (MADGE) team raided a home in an east Medford neighborhood on Tuesday, making one arrest and seizing heroin and cash.
Medford Police said that MADGE served a search warrant in the 2800-bock of Spring Hills Drive around 10:30 a.m. The search found 1.37 pounds of heroin, $5,000 in cash, and packaging materials, the agency said.
Officers arrested 33-year-old Marquis Akins, taking him into custody on warrants for failure to appear in court from a 2016 heroin bust that was "similar in nature," and a warrant for domestic abuse.
MPD said that there was also a toddler in the home, and Akins faces a separate charge for Child Neglect.
Akins is being held without bail, according to MPD.
