Two pounds of meth found at Yolo County truck stop

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.

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.
