Synopsis: On 10/11/12 at approximately 2224 hours Mendocino County Sheriff's Deputies observed two subjects in a parked vehicle at a closed business at 3201 North State Street.

Deputies made contact with suspects Joshua Hilliard and Buck Smith. Deputies observed the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle the suspects were in.

A wants/warrants check of both subjects revealed Buck Smith had a $350,000 bail felony fugitive of justice warrant for his arrest out of Oregon. Smith was taken into custody on the warrant.

Deputies searched the vehicle and located controlled substance pharmaceuticals and drug paraphernalia.

Hilliard appeared under the influence of a controlled substance and was taken into custody for the illegal possession of the controlled pharmaceuticals and drug paraphernalia. He was later evaluated and arrested for being under the influence of illicit drugs.

Both subjects were incarcerated at the Mendocino County jail.
