JOSEPHINE COUNTY, Ore. – An alleged drug dealer was arrested following an extended investigation
The Rogue Area Drug Enforcement team (RADE) said 33-year-old Molly Meador was arrested on March 21 after months of investigation into accusations of drug distribution within Josephine County.
The arrest came after a traffic stop on Monument Drive near Hugo. During the stop, a police K9 alerted to the presence of narcotics in the vehicle Meador was driving. Police said a subsequent search revealed Meador was transporting nearly a pound of methamphetamine, a pound of heroin, and $1,306 in cash.
Meador was booked into the Josephine County Jail on charges of unlawful possession and distribution of both heroin and meth.
