Million dollar drug bust in Cadillac SUV on I-5 near Ashland

Raul Mendoza, 65, Hillsboro and his 55 pounds of high grade heroin

Oregon State Police noticed Raul Mendoza, 65 of Hillsboro, traveling northbound on Interstate 5 near Ashland Thursday. The trooper also noticed that he and his 2006 Cadillac SRX SUV had performed a traffic infraction, whereupon he pulled Mendoza over. During their conversation the trooper became suspicious and a drug dog was summoned to the scene. The dog quickly sniffed out 15 individually sealed packages of heroin weighing 55 pounds with a street value of $1.1 million.

Mendoza was arrested and lodged in the Jackson County Jail. His vehicle was also taken to a police impound yard for disposition for being used in a major drug crime. Troopers say the bust is the biggest in recent memory in the south state area.
