  • A pair of 19-year-olds accused of attempting to rob a woman before fleeing and running her over during a Monday drug deal appeared in court for the first time today since their arrest.
    Andrew Daniel Arzner and Jerica Whittney Stinson were both arraigned in Jackson County Circuit Court today, court records show. Stinson remains in the Jackson County Jail on charges of first- and second-degree robbery, according to court records. Arzner was also arraigned on first- and second-degree robbery charges, with additional charges of second-degree assault and failure to perform duties of driver to injured persons.
    Both have bails set at $500,000. They have preliminary hearings set at 4 p.m. Wednesday, March 19, records show.
    Arzner and Stinson allegedly set up a meeting with 20-year-old Brittney Debler to meet in the north Medford Fred Meyer parking lot Monday night and swap cash for drugs, apparently opiate-based pain pills, Medford police said. The exchange took place through the open window of Arzner's Toyota 4Runner. During the meeting, Medford police say Stinson snatched the cash from Debler before Arzner tried to pull away. Debler held onto the door while Arzner allegedly drove erratically through the parking lot, trying to shake her off. Debler eventually lost her grip and fell, hitting the pavement just before the vehicle's rear tire ran over her. Police say Arzner and Stinson fled without stopping.
    Debler was transported to Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center. She remained in critical condition today.
    Authorities arrested Arzner and Stinson Tuesday morning.
