Sergeant Steve Brooks, Public Information Officer
A vehicle stop conducted by members of the Sheriff’s Narcotics Task Force has resulted in one arrest and the seizure of narcotics, drug paraphernalia, cash and stolen property.
On January 31, 2012, members of the Sheriff’s Narcotics Task Force conducted a vehicle stop on South Forbes Street in Lakeport. They contacted the driver, who was identified as 36 year old Nino Salee Davis, of American Canyon. During the vehicle stop, detectives learned that Davis was on searchable probation out of Napa County for possession of a controlled substance. During a search of Davis it was discovered that he had attempted to hide approximately one ounce of methamphetamine, two grams of cocaine and digital scales inside his underwear. He was also in possession of approximately $500.00.
The Sheriff’s Narcotics Task Force then conducted a probation search of Davis’ motel room in Lakeport, where he admitted to be staying. Detectives located a police scanner, a glass “meth” pipe, two hypodermic needles and several oxycontin pills, which Davis did not have a prescription for. Detectives also located a laptop computer which was discovered to have been stolen and taken during a burglary within the county.
Davis was arrested for possession of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance for sale, transportation of a controlled substance and possession of stolen property. He was transported to the Lake County Hill Road Correctional Facility and booked.
The Sheriff’s Narcotics Task Force will continue its efforts to eradicate narcotics from the communities of Lake County and seize the suspected profits of drug trafficking for the asset forfeiture whenever possible. Anyone with information that can assist the Task Force with this effort is encouraged to call the anonymous tip line at 263-3663.
