On Thursday, March 17th, 2022, detectives with the Douglas Interagency Narcotics Team (DINT) arrested two men on drug trafficking charges.
DINT detectives contacted two men in a vehicle in the parking lot of a business in the 100 block of Gazely Bridge Road, in Canyonville. The men were detained in relation to an ongoing investigation. Drug detection K-9 “Trapper” sniffed the area around the vehicle and alerted to the presence of narcotics coming from inside.
A search of the vehicle revealed almost 6 pounds of suspected methamphetamine, which is a very large amount. 40 year old Luis Pacheco-Lopez, of Medford, Oregon, and 22 year old Daniel Velarde-Medrano, of Huntington Park, California, were both lodged at the Douglas County Jail on charges of Possession and Delivery of Methamphetamine.
