Synopsis: On 10-05-13 at approximately 1520 hours a Mendocino County Sheriff's Deputy was parked near a stop sign in the 21000 block of Meadowbrook Drive when he noticed marijuana odor coming from a red Toyota pickup which had come to a stop near his position. The vehicle also had an uncovered load in the back and no front license plate.

A traffic stop was initiated and the driver, Desmond Spiker, was contacted.

Spiker admitted he had been smoking marijuana as he drove past the Deputy. When asked if there were any other illegal items in his vehicle, Spiker told the Deputy that there may be a methamphetamine smoking pipe under his seat. The interior of the vehicle was subsequently searched.

The methamphetamine smoking pipe was never located but a plastic baggie containing approximately 1/2 gram of crystal methamphetamine was found under the driver's seat.

Spiker was arrested for possession of a controlled substance and booked into the Mendocino County Jail where he was to be held in lieu of $10,000.00 bail.
