Deputies went to a residence in the Discovery Bay area to serve an arrest warrant on a wanted subject. As they approached the residence they observed a vehicle blocking one lane of the roadway. The deputies heard the vehicle’s alarm sound three times and approached the vehicle. They contacted an adult male in the vehicle and observed intravenous drug-use paraphernalia on the floor. The subject advised the deputies he had a BB gun in his waistband. Deputies described the BB gun as resembling an actual handgun. The subject consented to a search of his vehicle and deputies located a “loaded” syringe containing heroin, a glass smoking pipe containing methamphetamine, a sock that was tied at the top with a padlock inside (which the subject said he carried for protection), four throwing knives, and a device that can be used to make credit cards. A credit card and other identification, not in the subjects name, were also located. The subject had a ski mask attached around his neck and tucked into his sweatshirt. He also had several pre-packaged Ziploc baggies containing heroin and lorazepam and clonazepam pills inside a sock attached to his underwear. The subject was booked into the Jefferson County Jail for three counts of Violation of the Uniform Controlled Substance Act; Possession of Drug Paraphernalia; Credit, payment cards—Unlawful factoring of transactions; Possession of Another’s Identification; and Introducing Contraband.
