Written by 

According to a press release from the California Highway Patrol, dated Nov. 21, 2012:

On November 21, 2012 a Garberville Area CHP Officer observed a green 2004 Jeep Laredo traveling southbound on US-101 at a high rate of speed through Richardson Grove, resulting in an enforcement stop north of the Mendocino County line.  The Jeep's driver was identified by his California Driver's License as Luis Alonso Nolasco (DOB: 12/21/1972) from Paramount, California. 

While speaking with Mr. Nolasco, the Officer recognized the strong odor of marijuana emitting from inside the Jeep.  Mr.Nolasco also related that there was marijuana inside the vehicle.  During a subsequent investigation, approximately 111 pounds of processed and packaged marijuana was located inside the Jeep.  The marijuana was processed and packaged in clear plastic bags, each weighing nearly a pound.  Mr. Nolasco was placed under arrest on suspicion of marijuana cultivation, possession and transportation for sales.  The Humboldt County Drug Task Force (HCDTF) responded to the scene and assisted Garberville Area CHP with this incident.
