Two pounds of methamphetamine were found in a vehicle at a Dunnigan truck stop, according to Yolo County sheriff’s deputies.
Patrol deputies spoke with a man standing outside the opened door of a vehicle at the Pilot Travel Center about 3:30 a.m. Wednesday. The vehicle was illegally parked and did not have valid registration, according to a sheriff’s press release.
The driver identified himself and presented a temporary driver’s license to deputies. A check of the license informed deputies that he was subject to search because he was on probation.
Deputies searched the vehicle and found a switchblade and a suspicious substance that later was tested. It was determined that the 2 pounds of substance was methamphetamine, worth about $12,000 when sold on the street, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
Never miss a local story.
The man, who was not identified pending further investigation, was arrested on suspicion of violation of probation, possession and transportation of methamphetamine and possession of a switchblade.
