A 23-year-old Los Angeles man faces multiple drug charges after officials found bags of marijuana in his vehicle.
According to a news report in The Redding Record Searchlight, the man was travelling from Tehama County back to Los Angeles when officials pulled him over for not having a front license plate.
The man apparently told officials that the marijuana was for his own personal use. He has been charged with transportation of marijuana for sale. Transportation of a controlled substance is a serious allegation that carries heavy penalties. An individual need not intend to sell the drugs to be charged with transportation. Mere possession of the controlled substances could result in these serious charges.
