Arizona Trio Arrested For Marijuana Transport
Tinted windows lead deputies to drug discovery.
Three Arizona men were arrested Wednesday morning for transportation of marijuana after a traffic stop on The Old Road near Magic Mountain Parkway shortly after midnight.
Deputies noticed the men’s 2006 Nissan Altima had no front plates and darkly tinted windows and pulled the vehicle over.
Approaching the car, they detected a strong smell of marijuana and searched the vehicle, recovering a two-pound vacuum sealed bag of marijuana.
Narcotics officers said the street value of the drug seized was approximately $10,000.
In custody are Albert Barragan, 25; Joseph Soto, 20 and David Plumaj, 22. The trio are scheduled for arraignment Friday in Santa Clarita Superior Court and are each being held at the jail in lieu of $25,000 bail.
