Deputies: Scales, drugs found on suspect in Valencia

- By Caleb Lunetta

Deputies say they arrested a 42-year-old Bakersfiel­d man after they reportedly found him to be in possession of drugs and scales, leading them to believe he intended to sell the contraband.

The arrest stems from deputies conducting a traffic stop Wednesday on the 23100 block of Valencia Boulevard after they suspected the man to be driving a stolen vehicle.

“During a search of the vehicle, deputies located various amounts of methamphet­amine and contraband similar for use of sales of narcotics,” said Deputy Natalie Arriaga, a spokeswoma­n for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station. “The male was ultimately arrested for possession of a controlled substance for sales and taking a vehicle without the owner’s consent.”

He was booked into the SCV Sheriff’s Station and subsequent­ly released on citation to appear in court at a later date.
