A Roseburg man was arrested on drug charges and a parole violation after police found him to be in possession of approximately 1.5 pounds of marijuana and a small amount of methamphetamine during a traffic stop Tuesday morning.

At approximately 8:47 a.m., officers from the Roseburg Police Department pulled over a white 2006 Ford van, driven by Rick James Eveland, 57, of Roseburg.

Eveland's vehicle was blocking the entrance of Roseburg High School in the 400 block of West Harvard Avenue, Roseburg, but his license was found to be suspended and he was unable to find anyone to retrieve the vehicle.

During the stop, police found marijuana and methamphetamine. He was arrested on suspicion of methamphetamine possession and a parole violation.

Eveland was taken to the Douglas County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bail and his vehicle was towed from the scene.
