suspicious vehicle parked on Vance Avenue near
Highway 255 in Manila.

The Sergeant checked Robinson’s name through his dispatch for any possible arrest warrants.  The dispatcher advised that Robinson was on probation for a narcotics violation and had a search and seizure clause.

The Sergeant then advised Robinson that he was going to search his person and his vehicle.  The Sergeant then located what appeared to be about ¼ of a pound of heroin hidden in the fuse box underneath the dash board in the vehicle.  The Sergeant also located about a 1/8 of gram of methamphetamine in the vehicle.

Robinson was then placed under arrest.  The Humboldt County Drug
