Oregon State Police (OSP) Drug Enforcement Section detectives are continuing the investigation following the arrest of a California man one week ago during a Tuesday morning traffic stop near Eugene in which 11 pounds of crystal methamphetamine and one pound of cocaine was found concealed within a vehicle. Due to an ongoing investigation, these details were delayed for release until approved by detectives.
 
On July 20, 2010 at approximately 8:45 a.m. an OSP trooper from the Springfield Area Command office stopped a 1998 Honda Accord displaying California license plates for a lane change violation northbound on Interstate 5 near Eugene. The car's driver was identified as RAMON JUAN PULIDO, age 31, from Visalia, California.
 
Subsequent investigation during the traffic stop with the assistance an OSP drug detection dog led to the discovery and seizure of approximately 11 pounds of crystal methamphetamine and one pound of cocaine concealed within the vehicle. Combined estimated value of the seized methamphetamine and cocaine is nearly $250,000.
 
PULIDO was arrested and lodged in the Lane County Jail for Unlawful Possession and Distribution of a Controlled Substance – Methamphetamine and Unlawful Possession and Distribution of a Controlled Substance - Cocaine. Jail staff also advised there is Federal Offense hold on him.
