Comments Off on Three arrested after traffic stops in American Canyon

Routine traffic stops in American Canyon on Thursday resulted in the arrests of two Vallejoans and an American Canyon resident on a variety of charges, American Canyon’s police chief said.

American Canyon police stopped a vehicle at Daniel Drive and Flosden Avenue just before 9 a.m. for expired registration and encountered a strong marijuana odor, prompting a further search, police chief Jean Donaldson said.

This led to the arrest of the vehicle’s passenger, Clifton Dickson, 62, of Vallejo, on suspicion of possession of methamphetamine, marijuana and drug-related paraphernalia.

Dickson was also found to be in possession of a loaded firearm, Donaldson said.

The driver, Theresa Wallace, 37, also of Vallejo, was arrested on drug-related charges. A third person in the car was not arrested, Donaldson said.

At about 10:45 p.m. Thursday, another expired registration-related vehicle stop in the 2500 block of Flosden, led to the arrest of Hector Hernandez of American Canyon. Hernandez was on probation and subject to a temporary restraining order meant to keep him from the woman who was driving the car, Donaldson said.

Hernandez was found to be under the influence of a controlled substance and a subsequent search of his residence produced methamphetamine and a “meth pipe,” Donaldson said.

He was arrested and taken to Napa County Jail, Donaldson said.
