BEND, OR -- Three Medford residents were arrested in Bend on a number of drug charges, following a traffic stop in southeast Bend, earlier this week. Police pulled over 32-year-old Christopher Soares (pictured, left) Tuesday afternoon, after they say he committed several traffic violations.

 

The Central Oregon Drug Enforcement (CODE) team responded to the stop, and a K9 unit alerted to narcotics inside the Lexus. Detectives found 17-pounds of processed marijuana, along with meth, heroin, cocaine, morphine pills, methadone and a loaded handgun. CODE says they also found evidence of sales and distribution of drugs, including scales and transaction records.

 

Soares and his two passengers, 27-year-old Eric Conlogue and 25-year-old Kimberly Chavez, are accused of traveling from Medford to Bend to sell commercial quantities of narcotics.
