A man was arrested and released on a citation last week after being found in possession of a ‘large’ bag of methamphetamine and catalytic converters stolen from Castaic after a routine traffic stop.

At around 10 p.m. on Wednesday, March 30, deputies patrolling Castaic observed a vehicle with an expired registration near Parker and The Old Roads, said Deputy Natalie Arriaga, spokeswoman for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Department. .

“As (the deputies) approached the vehicle to contact the driver during a traffic stop, they observed several severed catalytic converters and tools commonly used for theft in the bed of the truck,” Arriaga said.

When deputies searched the interior of the truck, they found a “large” bag of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia, according to Arriaga.

Luis Aceves Garcia, 33, of Wilmington, was arrested for transportation of a controlled substance, grand theft, felonies and possession of drug paraphernalia, a misdemeanor, Arriaga added.

Garcia was booked to serve as sheriff of Santa Clarita Valley and was later released on a court summons at an upcoming date.
