Meth, heroin seized at bus station

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

Medford Police investigators received a tip about the drugs on a commercial bus and contacted Jesus Adrien Rodriguez-Solis, 35, of Delano, Calif., Medford police said in a news release.

Rodriguez-Solis was traveling with a small suitcase that contained meth and heroin. A drug-sniffing dog was used in the investigation, police said. They 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 charges of distribution, manufacture and possession of heroin and methamphetamine. He remained in jail late Thursday 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.
