MADGE seizes pounds of drugs in Central Point raid
Two men face felony drug charges after the Medford Area Drug and Gang Enforcement task force reportedly seized pounds of narcotics from a home in Central Point.
Corey Dennis Bearnson, 47, and Osbaldo Silva, 35, were arrested Friday morning on multiple felony charges accusing them of manufacturing and selling methamphetamine and heroin from a house at 6435 Honeytree Lane, according to a press release issued Tuesday by MADGE and documents filed in Jackson County Circuit Court.
MADGE detectives say they seized approximately seven pounds of methamphetamine, two pounds of heroin, along with user amounts of psychedelic mushrooms and prescription medications from Bearnson’s Central Point home.
Police said they also seized “evidence” at Silva’s residence in the 800 block of Dakota Avenue in Medford.
The case was “the culmination of several years of investigative work,” according to a police press release.
Police say the Central Point home was Silva’s “stash” house for drugs, according to court documents filed by MADGE.
During the Central Point raid, Silva allegedly eluded detectives in a black BMW, but police found him at his Medford home before noon the day of the raid.
Bearnson and Silva made their initial court appearances Monday on charges of manufacturing, delivering and possessing methamphetamine and delivering and possessing heroin. Silva also faces a felony charge of attempting to elude police in a vehicle.
Bearnson and Silva remained Wednesday in the Jackson County Jail on $500,000 bail.
