Drug agents seized 5 pounds of methamphetamine and more than 2 pounds of heroin from a man traveling north on a bus Wednesday.

Investigators and a drug-sniffing dog from the Medford Police Department got a tip that about the drugs on a commercial bus and contacted Jesus Adrien Rodriguez-Solis, 35, of Delano, Calif., Medford police said in a news release today.

Rodriguez-Solis was traveling with a small suitcase, which subsequent investigation found carried the meth and heroin. Police said the drugs were destined for an unknown location north of Jackson County.

On the local market, the drugs could fetch about $150,000 at dealer prices or up to $340,000 at street-level prices paid by users, officials said.

Rodriguez-Solis was lodged in the Jackson County Jail on distribution, manufacture and possession of heroin and methamphetamine. He remained in jail this morning on $1.15 million bail.

Agents from Medford Area Drug and Gang Enforcement, Immigrations and Customs Enforcement and Homeland Security Investigations collaborated on the investigation.
