Former high school football coach indicted on drug charges

A south Forsyth man and former high school football and youth baseball coach who was arrested in April for allegedly shipping prescription medication across the country has been indicted on connected charges.

Jeffrey Robert Measor, 39, faces two counts in Forsyth County Superior Court for possession with intent to distribute — one for tramadol and one for carisoprodol, according to a June bill indictment.

The indictment document does not cite how much of each of the schedule IV pill he is accused of possessing, but at the time of his arrest, the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office said their narcotics detectives and federal agencies confiscated more than 64,000 pills in three separate locations.

According to the sheriff’s office at the time of his arrest, Measor reportedly used two UPS stores in Forsyth County every other day for the six months prior to his April 21 arrest to pick up or drop off packages originally from India that came through New York.

They supposedly arrived with a spreadsheet of labels, and Measor is accused of splitting up the pills before redistributing them.

Measor was the football coach at Centennial High School from 2007-11, facing off against then-region opponents West Forsyth and North Forsyth high schools in those last few years.

He has not worked at the school in Roswell for six years.

More recently, Measor coached 8U youth baseball at Sharon Park for the fall 2016 season, which ran from late August to mid-October.

Tramadol is an opioid pain medication used to treat moderate to severe pain in adults and has a high risk of dependence.

Prescription opioid medication has been widely discussed in recent years as a known link to heroin addiction, as it gives the same high.

Two counts of possession of a schedule IV controlled substance and three counts of possession of a schedule III, IV or V controlled substance with intent to distribute have been dismissed.

Forsyth County Superior Court Judge Philip C. Smith is presiding over Measor’s case, for which a trial or plea date has not been set.
