MPD Case #22-0113
WHITE CITY, Ore. – Illegal Marijuana Enforcement Team (IMET) detectives served a search warrant on a marijuana processing and storage facility Tuesday morning on the 3800 block of Dodge Road in White City. The operation was the result of a month-long investigation and seized 2,424 lbs. of processed illegal marijuana, $4,100 in cash, and 20 firearms. The primary suspect in this investigation was on the property at the time of the raid, and criminal charges are pending through the Jackson County District Attorney’s office.
While regulatory agencies investigate permitted cannabis operations, IMET is focusing on the black-market marijuana trade in the Rogue Valley. IMET is a multi-agency task force funded by a grant from the Oregon Criminal Justice Commission. The task force includes personnel from Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, Medford Police Department, and the DA’s Office.
Investigations are open and ongoing with detectives working additional leads. No further information is currently available for release.
