The Douglas Interagency Narcotics Team halted a shipment of over 3 pounds of methamphetamine Saturday, resulting in its fourth arrest in a week. 

After conducting a traffic stop near Canyonville, the team had reason to believe the vehicle traveling northbound on Interstate 5 from California contained large amounts of narcotics, according to police. The driver of the vehicle was later identified as Rodger Akins, 37, of Roseburg. 

Detectives proceeded with a search of the vehicle where they uncovered about 3.5 pounds of suspected methamphetamine, 21.4 grams of suspected heroin and small amounts of suspected LSD and fentanyl. 

This was the fourth arrest in a week from the narcotics team — the last arrest ended a weeks-long investigation. 

Akins is currently lodged at the Douglas County Jail on charges of unlawful possession and delivery of methamphetamine and unlawful possession of heroin.
