A 31-year-old Red Bluff man was arrested Sunday evening and booked into Tehama County Jail on the charges of possession of methamphetamine for sale and possession of drug paraphernalia.
At 9:28 p.m., Officers Sean Baxter and Matt Coker learned that Christopher Dee Rhoads was staying at the Classic Inn, 1142 Main Street, in Red Bluff and attempted to contact him there about an on-going investigation.
There was no answer at Rhoads’ room, but as the officers were walking away they saw him exit a different hotel room and run into his room. Looking through a window, officers saw Rhoads hurrying to hide items under the bed in his room.
According to a Red Bluff Police press release, Rhoads is on non-revocable State Parole, and is subject to search and seizure.
When Rhoads came to the door, he admitted to officers that he had been concealing methamphetamine under his bed, the release said.
While searching the room, officers found methamphetamine, paraphernalia and evidence of sales. Rhoads was booked into Tehama County Jail.
Bail was set at $18,000.
