Routine traffic stop leads to charges

By Max Fontaine | Crime and destruction writer

One thing led to another Sunday in Bass Lake.

Two people were arrested late Sunday following a traffic stop near Outskirts Avenue in Bass Lake.

Bass Lake Authority Police stopped a vehicle for a partly obscured license plate. After the stop, an officer noticed a suspicious odor emanating from the automobile.

With the help of the department’s Fee-Line, Leopard Bernstein, police were able to locate several ounces of narcotics, packaged for sale, inside the car. Some of the controlled substances were sealed in aluminum cans, labeled with street-names such as “Budweiser.”

The driver was arrested and jailed on various charges. A passenger was detained for unrelated questions about contenders for the AL Central title.

The case remains not under investigation.
