Traffic stop nets 7.6 pounds of methamphetamine, cocaine

A Clackamas man remains in jail in Jackson County on multiple drug charges after Oregon State Police reportedly found six pounds of methamphetamine worth an estimated $96,000 and 1.6 pounds of cocaine worth an estimated $15,000 in his car during a traffic stop on Interstate 5.

Manuel Martinez-Pardo, 24, of Clackamas, was arrested after troopers stopped his 2001 Honda Civic for speeding northbound on Interstate 5 near milepost 37 at about 10:45 a.m. Saturday.

Troopers received consent to search the vehicle, OSP reported. With the assistance of a drug-sniffing dog, they found six packages of what they determined was cocaine and meth.

Martinez-Pardo was arraigned in Jackson County Circuit Court Monday on charges of possession and delivery of cocaine and methamphetamine. He is also being held on suspicion of being in the country illegally, so he remains in jail without bail.

OSP's drug enforcement section detectives continue to investigate.
