On 02-14-2021 at about 1:50 AM, a Mendocino County Sheriff’s Deputy conducted a traffic stop on a pickup truck, for a vehicle code violation, in the area of mile marker 2 on Highway 162 in Willits, California.
The Deputy contacted the driver, Timothy Davis, and a passenger. The Deputy knew both subjects from prior contacts and Davis advised he did not have a driver’s license.
The Deputy requested a records check on Davis and the passenger. The Deputy was advised by Sheriff’s Office Dispatch that Davis was on county parole (PRCS) with numerous terms to include submit to search, and obey all laws.
Pursuant to Davis’ search terms, he and the truck were searched and the passenger consented to a search of his person.
The passenger was found to have a holster for a firearm on his person but no firearm was located on him or in the vehicle.
Davis was found to be in possession of US currency on his person and five individually packaged containers of suspect methamphetamine with a total weight of 16.4 grams gross field weight, a digital scale with a white crystal residue on it, and a used glass pipe commonly used to ingest methamphetamine was found in the vehicle.
Probable cause linked Davis to ownership of the items and the passenger was released at the scene.
Davis was arrested for violation of the terms of his parole (3455 PC), possession of a controlled substance for sale (11378 HS) and transportation of a controlled substance for sale (11379 HS).
Davis was transported to the Mendocino County Jail where he was to be held in lieu of $25,000.00 in bail.
