Comments Off on Wanted man’s arrest leads police to methamphetamine

Chico police say they found methamphetamine on an 18-year-old arrested Tuesday on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.

Deshawn Dean, a Chico resident, was wanted in Butte County when police found him with the illegal substance, said Chico police Sgt. Rob Merrifield.

Dean was spotted by a police officer in Children’s Playground next to Bidwell Presbyterian Church, Merrifield said.

Police chased Dean through residents’ backyards to Bidwell Park after he realized he was being followed, according to a Chico police press release.

Officers booked Dean on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance as well as the original suspected assault with a deadly weapon, Merrifield said.
