Wrong-way bike rider found with meth

Riding his bicycle southbound on Central Avenue in the northbound lane earned Billy Howard, 43, of Modesto, the attention of an officer early Tuesday, June 9, and a citation for possession of a controlled substance.

Howard was stopped at 12:19 a.m. in the area of Central Avenue and Hollister Street. When the officer asked if he could search Howard's pockets, the suspect agreed. Inside of a cigarette pack was a plastic package containing methamphetamine. He was cited and released.
