A Medford man was arrested Tuesday on heroin- and cocaine-related charges by local drug enforcement officers, authorities said.

Medford Area Drug and Gang Enforcement police arrested Zeus Apolo Guzman-Aguilar, 36, of the 1200 block of Bens Lane, after conducting a raid at a residence in the 3300 block of Table Rock Road, said a MADGE news release.

According to court records, Guzman-Aguilar lives on Bens Lane in Medford, but he is being considered an illegal immigrant, according to Jackson County Jail records.

The raid netted 2 ounces of cocaine, 1 ounce of heroin and weight scales, the release said.

Before obtaining a search warrant for the property, police conducted a two-month investigation.

"Other occupants on the premises were found not to be involved in the criminal behavior," the release said.

Guzman-Aguilar is lodged in the Jackson County Jail without bail on charges of possession, delivery and manufacture of heroin; possession, delivery and manufacture of cocaine; a parole violation for delivery of heroin; and being in the country illegally, jail records show.

According to online court records, Guzman-Aguilar was charged in 2011 with delivery, manufacture and possession of heroin, but was only convicted of possession of heroin in Jackson County Circuit Court.
