Two California men were arrested by Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers during a traffic stop last Friday on Interstate 5 near Goshen when they were found in possession of over 2 1/2 lbs. of marijuana and a stun gun. Both were lodged in the Lane County Jail and have posted bail and been released.
On March 5, 2010 at approximately 1:10 p.m. an OSP trooper stopped a 1995 Jeep Cherokee four-door displaying California license plates northbound on Interstate 5 near milepost 185 for a lane change violation. The two occupants were identified as driver TYLER A. CHIPLEY, age 26, from Shasta Lake, California, and passenger JARROD T. WADDLE, age 28, from Shingletown, California.
Subsequent investigation related to the traffic stop led to the discovery of over 2 1/2 lbs. of marijuana, Vicodin tablets, and a stun gun. Troopers also determined CHIPLEY was wanted on an outstanding warrant for Unlawful Possession of Methamphetamine.
In addition to the warrant out of Josephine County, CHIPLEY was arrested and lodged in Lane County Jail on the following charges:
  • Unlawful Possession and Distribution of Marijuana
  • Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance – Vicodin
  • Felon in Possession of a Restrict Weapon (Stun Gun)
WADDLE was arrested and lodged for Unlawful Possession and Distribution of Marijuana.
