Eugene Police Street Crimes officers conducted a narcotics investigation and subsequently applied for a search warrant for a vehicle and motorhome belonging to Mark Everett Foglesong, age 55. The investigation and subsequent search warrant on February 7 yielded more than $5,000, approximately 167 grams of suspected fentanyl powder, 180 grams of suspected methamphetamine, 69 grams of suspected fentanyl M30 pills, digital scales, and a rifle.  

Foglesong was lodged at the Lane County Jail for Possess/ Manufacture/ Deliver Controlled Substance- Commercial Drug Offense. Case 24-01890

 

Note for background: Experts consider 2 mg of fentanyl (visualize 10 to15 grains of table salt) to be lethal, but many counterfeit pills contain up to 5 mg (more than twice the lethal dose). This amount is incredibly small. One gram is equal to 1,000 milligrams.
