More than two pounds of methamphetamine were found on two Davis residents during a traffic stop in late March. Two Davis residents were arrested.
The arrests of John Dunham, 54, and Armida Contreras, 48, were part of an investigation by the Yolo County Narcotic Enforcement Team into the sales of meth in Yolo County. The involvement of these two Davis residents, who were also parolees, was a specific part of this investigation, according to Davis Police.
Dunham and Contreras were pulled over at Lyndell Terrace and John Jones Road in Davis on March 22. Here’s the rest of the story, as told by the Davis Police Department:
A subsequent search revealed a large quantity of suspected methamphetamine (approximately one kilogram; over two pounds) that Contreras tried to conceal when she ran from the vehicle on foot from the officers. Dunham and Conteras were arrested for 11378 H&S (possession of methamphetamine for sales), 11379 H&S (transportation of methamphetamine), and 3056 PC (parole violation), and booked into the Yolo County Jail.
Pursuant to the arrests and investigation, three search warrants were served in Yolo County: 808 F Street, Apartment 308 in Davis; 23 East Main Street in Winters; and 1806 Donner Court in Woodland. While serving the warrant in Woodland, officers seized an additional 1.5 grams of suspected methamphetamine and narcotic smoking paraphernalia.
