A 35-year-old Salida man on probation was arrested during a Tuesday, Aug. 18 traffic stop for possession of illegal narcotics and lying to the officer about his identity.
At 6:19 p.m., Officer Krandall Vandagriff stopped a vehicle for expired registration and asked all the occupants for their identification. A backseat passenger, Richard Sisk, 35, of Salida stated that he did no ID on him and initially gave his brother’s name.
Officer Vandagriff requested the dispatcher to send a photograph of the person they found a driver’s license match to and the photograph did not match Sisk.
When confronted, Sisk offered up his true identity and admitted using his brother’s name. Sisk was on searchable probation. The officer found numerous hypodermic syringes and related drug paraphernalia on Sisk.
