Two men were arrested on methamphetamine-related charges early Thursday morning, according to a release from the Springfield Police Department.

At 12:41 a.m., Nov. 9, two officers initiated a traffic stop on a vehicle which failed to use a turn signal in the 4200 block of Jasper Rd.

The officers requested records on the two vehicle occupants, Paul Allen Blain, 51; and Wesley Jackson Rofinot, 33.

During the records check, officers learned both suspects had previous police contacts for drug and weapons related offenses, and eluding police.

One officer observed the presence of drug paraphernalia in the vehicle in plain sight, and questioned both Blain and Rofinot. Both suspects denied knowing about the paraphernalia.

Blain and Rofinot were taken into custody. A police search of the vehicle yielded eight ounces of methamphetamine, over $21,000 cash, and drug packaging materials.

Both suspects are lodged in Lane County Jail on charges of delivery and possession of methamphetamine, and Blain also faces a charge of possession of burglary tools.
