The deputy initiated a stop and recognized the driver, Zach Moore age 50 of Penn Valley, from prior contact. Moore could not produce a valid driver’s license or vehicle registration. Moore was not even sure his license was current. The deputy ran his name through the system and it returned that his license was suspended for a failure to appear on a court matter. The deputy asked Moore to step out of the vehicle so he could take him into custody for displaying invalid registration information as well as for the suspended license and a new discovery was made.

Moore was taken into custody for the possession of approximately 2 grams of methamphetamine as well as the vehicle code violations.
