Two suspects pulled into the CHP parking lot for expired registration, and were arrested for drug possession. CHP Public Information Officer Marc Morrison says an officer saw a car with expired registration, and stopped the car with two males in the car, Monday evening. Officer Morrison says the officer smelled marijuana coming from the car and a search was conducted on the car. Officer Morrison says suspected drugs were found.
“A search revealed quite a few things. We found over three pounds of marijuana. We did find some burnt marijuana also, nearly a pound of marijuana hash, methamphetamines and three loaded pistols.”
54 year old Robert Avila and 57 year old David Roper both of North San Juan were taken into custody on a variety of suspected drug charges, including felons in possession of fire arms. Officer Morrison says one of the guns found was a forty-five caliber automatic, in a bag within reach of both men.
