Medford man arrested on drug trafficking charges

Jackson County Community Justice found hydrocodone pills, methamphetamine, packaging materials and cash believe to be proceeds from drug trafficking in the home of a man on probation for a past drug conviction Wednesday, police reported.

Mark Francis Oyler, 37, of Medford, is being held without bail in the Jackson County Jail on charges of unlawful delivery, manufacture and possession of a controlled substance, unlawful delivery of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school, and first-degree child neglect, as Oyler's 14-year-old daughter lived with him.

Community Justice checked on Oyler at his home in the 2000 block of Campus Drive on Wednesday and found 204 hydrocodone pills, a small amount of meth, packaging materials and $7,911 in cash. The home is within 1,000 feet of North Medford High School.

Medford Area Drug and Gang Enforcement was contacted to assist in the investigation and Oyler's arrest.

Oyler's daughter was not at home during the investigation. She is being assisted by the Department of Human Services.

Oyler has an arraignment scheduled today at 1:45 p.m.
