CENTRAL POINT, Ore. — Troopers with Oregon State Police discovered pounds of pills, believed to be the powerful synthetic opioid fentanyl, during a traffic stop near Central Point last Wednesday.

Shortly before noon on August 26, a trooper from OSP's Central Point Area Command stopped the driver of a 2014 Toyota Camry for "lane usage and safety belt violations" on I-5 northbound near exit 33, the agency said.

OSP said that the trooper conducted a probable cause search of the car during the traffic stop, discovering roughly 6.4 pounds of "suspected fentanyl pills" concealed in the trunk and under the car's back seat.

Police identified the driver as 20-year-old Eric Osuna, accompanied by 20-year-old Adrian Perez, both of Moreno Valley, California. Both men were lodged in the Jackson County Jail on charges of Unlawful Manufacture/Delivery of a Controlled Substance - Schedule II, Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance - Schedule II and Unlawful Delivery of Counterfeit Controlled Substance - Schedule II.

Neither Osuna or Perez appear on the Jackson County Jail log as of Thursday morning.

OSP said it was assisted in the investigation by members of Homeland Security Investigations' Medford office.
