Focused Patrol Yields Multiple Citations, Arrests (Photo) - 12/07/17

MEDFORD - On Wednesday, December 6, 2017, day shift deputies spent a few hours focusing on speed violations on North Foothill Road. In addition to three citations for speeding, deputies issued two citations for cell phone use, and six for driving while suspended (violation). Two people were arrested for driving while suspended (misdemeanor), including the driver of the red Honda pictured.

A passenger in that car ran away during the traffic stop. A deputy chased him over a quarter of a mile and arrested him (extra thanks to the citizen who helped slow him down!). The suspect was identified as Guillermo Ishtar Guitron III, 26, of Medford. Guitron had a felony warrant for parole violation.

K9 Jack was deployed around the car and alerted to the presence of drugs. Deputies found methamphetamine in the vehicle. The driver, Bill Wesley Spencer, Jr., 23, and a female passenger, Patricia Gaylynn Coggins, 21, were arrested and lodged in jail for probation violation.

Keep an eye out for more focused patrols on North Foothill Road and in other problem areas of the county. If you would like to see deputies focus on a particular traffic problem in your neighborhood, feel free to call dispatch at (541) 776-7206 to request extra patrol.

Case #17-25499
