Police said on Tuesday, June 8, investigators with the Medford Area Drug and Gang Enforcement team gathered in the 2800 block of Spring Hills Drive to serve a search warrant at the home of 33-year-old Marquis Devon Akins.
During the search, officers said they found 1.37 pounds of heroin, over $5,000 in cash, and packing materials.
Akins was arrested for unlawful delivery, manufacture, and possession of heroin. He was also charged with child neglect because there was a toddler in the home when police served the warrant.
Medford police said Akins had an outstanding for failing to appear in court from a similar heroin bust that happened in 2016. He also had a warrant for domestic abuse.
Akins is being held in the Jackson County Jail without bail.
