Synopsis: On 06/15/13 at about 10:00 PM Mendocino County Sheriff's Deputies contacted suspect Baraquiel Ruiz as he was walking along the roadway in Redwood Valley.

As Deputies spoke with Ruiz they observed he was displaying symptoms of illicit drug usage. An evaluation of Ruiz's sobriety led Deputies to believe he was under the influence of a controlled substance and he was subsequently arrested. A search of his person was conducted, for weapons and contraband, and Deputies located approximately 3 grams of methamphetamine in one of his pants pockets. Also located were items associated with the sales and or distribution of illicit drugs.

Ruiz was also arrested for possession of controlled substance for sale. Ruiz was transported and incarcerated at the Mendocino County jail with bail set at $30,000.
