Police seek man on probation violations tied to a meth conviction

EDITOR'S NOTE: Crime Stoppers of Southern Oregon, in cooperation with the Mail Tribune and KTVL Channel 10, is participating in "Meth Watch," a program intended to combat the manufacture and sales of methamphetamine in Southern Oregon. Each week, Meth Watch will focus on a person wanted by Jackson or Josephine county law enforcement agencies for delivery and/or manufacture of methamphetamine.

Donnel Ray Taylor is wanted by Medford police for failure to appear in Jackson County Circuit Court after violating conditions of probation on a conviction on a charge of delivering methamphetamine.

Taylor, whose last known address was on xTaylor Street in Medford, pleaded guilty in March 2006 to delivering meth. He was sentenced to 10 days in jail and two years probation. He failed to appear at an Aug. 23 arraignment to hear allegations that he violated probation.

There is an additional felony warrant for Taylor's arrest held by the Jackson County Sheriff's Department for Taylor's failure to appear at a probation violation hearing connected to his 2006 conviction of driving while suspended. Total bail on the warrants is $11,000.

Taylor is described as a 28-year-old white man standing 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighing approximately 130 pounds. He has brown hair, hazel eyes, pierced ears and numerous scars and tattoos, including the word "D'Nietra" on his upper right arm and an unknown tattoo on his left forearm. He may be wearing glasses or contact lenses. The picture shown in today's newspaper was taken in July 2006.

If you have seen Taylor or have information of his whereabouts, please contact Crime Stoppers of Southern Oregon at 800-3-DETECT (800-333-8328) and refer to case MT-352 MW.

Crime Stoppers will pay a reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest in this case or any other unsolved criminal activity. Callers can remain anonymous. The reward is sponsored by Sonitrol of Eugene.
