Two people are in custody, accused of possessing heroin and methamphetamine after a Yolo County sheriff’s deputy spotted loaded syringes in an unoccupied vehicle in a Cache Creek Casino parking lot.

A deputy spotted the vehicle in the lot at Highway 16 in Brooks about 7:20 a.m. Monday and saw three loaded syringes in plain view, according to a Sheriff’s Office news release. The deputy waited for the occupants to return to the vehicle and contacted them. A search of the vehicle turn up 13.5 grams of heroin, 9.72 grams of methamphetamine and 131 units of liquid methamphetamine, officials said.

Michael Brandon Mayberry, 33, of Esparto, and Virginia Monique Perez, 45, of Vacaville, were arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance for purchase, transporting to sell contraband, possession of a controlled narcotic, possession of a controlled substance and possession of controlled substance paraphernalia. Mayberry also is accused of committing a felony while on bail and possessing counterfeit money. Perez is accused of presenting false identification to a peace officer, and also had two outstanding warrants for possession of drug paraphernalia and a misdemeanor driving-under-the-influence charge, sheriff’s officials said.

Both were booked into Yolo County jail. Mayberry’s bail was set at $370,000 and Perez’s bail at $247,000. They are to be arraigned Thursday in Yolo County Superior Court.
