  • On February 10, an officer was investigating a suspicious vehicle with two subjects passed out in the vehicle. Both subjects appeared under the influence of a controlled substance. One suspect was found to be in possession of over 9 grams of methamphetamine. The other suspect had a prescription bottle with a different name on the bottle. The officer confirmed the name on the bottle was recently a victim in a vehicle burglary. The officer then located a car full of property and began to investigate further. He found property stolen from Felton two weeks prior, and located six additional victims of vehicle burglary ranging from Watsonville, Castroville, and Monterey. The officer has already received a thankful letter from one of the victims whose property was recovered.
