Drugs and paraphernalia found with man wanted in Shasta Co.


ORLAND, Calif. - On Thursday, Glenn County law enforcement arrested a man for possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia who was also wanted by law enforcement in Shasta County.

Around 6 p.m. a local resident reported a suspicious vehicle parked along the roadway in the area of County Road S north of County Road 25. It was reported that the driver of the vehicle appeared to be passed out and was un-responsive when the caller attempted to wake him.

The Glenn County Sheriff's Office deputies arrived and made contact with the man who was in the car. He was later identified as Jason Mark Gray, 42, of Anderson.

Gray declined medical attention after an ambulance arrived to the area.

A want-and-warrant check showed that Gray was the subject of a no bail felony warrant for a PRCS violation out of Shasta County.

Glenn County Sheriff's Office K9, Draco, and Deputy Barnes arrived at the scene and completed a search of the outside of the car. Draco alerted to the presence of a controlled substance which lead to a search of the car.

In the search process Deputy Barnes located 51.6 grams of methamphetamine. Because of this find the Glenn Interagency Narcotics Task Force (GLINTF) was requested to respond to the scene and assist with the investigation.

In subsequent searches law enforcement also found hypodermic syringes, scales, packaging material and a small amount of U.S. Currency that indicated sales of a controlled substance. Ammunition was also located in the vehicle, which Gray was not allowed to possess given his past felony.

Bail was set at $40,000.
