Drug seizure, arrest made on Benson Street

An investigation into complaints about drug dealing in west Medford led to the search of a Benson Street home and a string of drug charges against a man who lived there.

Aaron B. Linhart, 24, of the 500 block of Benson Street, was cited to appear in Jackson County Circuit Court on charges of manufacturing, delivering and possessing marijuana, psilocybin mushrooms and Ecstasy, as well as delivering and possessing LSD.

Investigators assigned to the Medford Area Drug and Gang Enforcement Team served a search warrant at Linhart's Benson Street home on Dec. 17 in response to complaints about drug dealing there, the team's supervisor, Medford police Lt. Tim Doney, said in a news release today.

As a result of the search, police found about a pound of pot, as well as the hallucinogenic mushrooms, LSD and Ecstasy. The drugs were seized and the investigation continued. It is still ongoing, but police said they could release Linhart's name now without endangering their ongoing work.
