Synopsis: On 04-03-2014 at approximately 6:16 P.M., Deputies initiated a traffic enforcement stop on a vehicle being operated by suspect Robert Fuller. Deputies knew Fullerís California license status was suspended/revoked and that he could not legally operate a motor vehicle. Deputies also knew Fuller to be on active CDC Parole and two other active terms of probation and that he must submit to search.

After Deputies arrested Fuller for the driving violation, a search of the vehicle was conducted and a small clear plastic bag was located that contained a white crystalline type substance, suspected to be methamphetamine. Further investigation revealed that the bag and its contents belonged to Barajas. The suspected methamphetamine field-tested positive for amphetamine and had a gross field weight of 0.5 grams.

Deputies arrested Barajas for possession of a controlled substance. Deputies also administered a field drug evaluation on Fuller in belief he was presently under the influence of a central nervous system stimulant. As a result of that evaluation, Fuller was additionally charged with being under the influence of a controlled substance and violation of parole.

Both Fuller and Barajas were transported to the Mendocino County Jail. Fuller was booked on 3056 PC, 14601.1 VC and 11550 HS with no bail. Barajas was booked on 113377 HS with bail set at $10,000.00.
