Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) SWAT Team served a search warrant early yesterday morning at a residence on the 2000 block of Crowfoot Road outside of Eagle Point. JCSO Patrol utilized SWAT, K9, and the Crisis Negotiators Team (CNT) to serve the warrant due to firearm threats made by the suspect towards law enforcement.
The suspect, Scott David Binion, 58, of Eagle Point, was not on the property at the time the warrant was served but was later contacted and charged with felony fourth-degree assault domestic violence, harassment, unlawful possession of a machine gun, unlawful possession of marijuana, and unlawful manufacturing of marijuana. On scene deputies found and seized 40 firearms, many of which were loaded and staged for use, including a shotgun suspended from the ceiling and pointed towards the door.
Illegal Marijuana Enforcement Team (IMET) detectives discovered a black-market cannabis growing and processing operation on the property. The detectives seized and destroyed 150 lbs. of illegal marijuana.
