More Transportation For Sale Arrests in Truckee

Two separate traffic stops led to the confiscation of over 100 pounds of marijuana and subsequent arrests Thursday in the Truckee area.  CHP Officer Gavin Graham says the first incident occurred east of Truckee as result of a vehicle code violation. Upon making contact with the vehicle occupants, 30 year old Harold Eads of Sugarcreek Missouri and 48 year old Mark Hayes of Raytown, Missouri provided inconsistent stories that led to a probable cause search of the car.

Total weight of the hash and marijuana was approximately 64 pounds. Both Eads and Hayes had prior criminal records and as a result were taken into custody and held on 250,000 dollars bail.

A second stop later in the evening involved another vehicle with an out of state driver, 63 year old Randall Cooper of Hastings Minnesota. He was found to transporting another 45 pounds of marijuana and was booked into the Nevada County Jail early Friday morning.
