A man who was found sleeping in a car parked in the red zone near the front of Food 4 Less at Hatch and Mitchell Thursday morning was found with drugs and arrested.
At 8:20 a.m., Officer Brian Chandler spotted the suspicious vehicle and stopped to check it out. Sleeping in the driver’s seat was Bryan Scoggin, 31, of Turlock. He was awakened and provided his name, which led to the discovery that Scoggin is on probation. Officer Scott Faure conducted a probation search of the vehicle while Officer Chandler searched Chandler.
Officer Faure located a clear plastic bag containing a smaller baggie that held a white powder-like substance. Also in the main bag were pieces of a white crystal-like substance. Another large plastic baggie containing approximately 30 smaller empty baggies was also found in the vehicle along with a glass methamphetamine pipe.
It was determined that the white powder like substance was methamphetamine. The white crystal-like substance that surrounded the baggie of methamphetamine was identified as Fentanyl.
Scoggin was arrested on charges of possession of a controlled substance for sale, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and probation violation.
