A Medford man was arrested on drug charges Wednesday morning after a two-month investigation by the Medford Area Drug and Gang Enforcement team.

MADGE officers assisted by the Medford Police Department executed a search warrant in the 500 block of Western Avenue in Medford and found multiple ounces of methamphetamine, scales and packaging, according to a press release.

Officers arrested Michael Angelo Cyrus, 27, on charges of unlawful possession of methamphetamine, unlawful delivery of methamphetamine within 1,000 feet of a school, unlawful manufacturing of methamphetamine within 1,000 feet of a school and first-degree child neglect. He was lodged in Jackson County Jail on $1.02 million bail.

Cyrus' girlfriend also was in the residence at the time of the search with their 2-month-old child. The Department of Human Services was advised and responded to the scene.
