Synopsis: On 11-25-2013 at 1330 hours Deputies from the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office were dispatched to a suspicious situation in the 73000 block of Highway 162 in Covelo, California.

While responding Deputies were notified a suspect had been rummaging inside of a parked vehicle when confronted by the vehicle's owner.

The suspect, Steven Charles Luna, then fled on foot while in possession of a yellow coin purse taken from inside the vehicle.

Luna was detained a short distance away by Round Valley Tribal Police Officers.

When Deputies arrived on scene they asked Luna for consent to search his person for weapons or drugs and he provided consent.

During a search of his clothing two plastic baggies of suspected methamphetamine, weighing approximately 1.5 grams total, and a glass pipe used to smoke methamphetamine was found.

Luna was booked into the Mendocino County Jail for possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and was to be held in lieu of $10,000.000 bail.
