A suspected drug dealer was arrested this week in Paso Robles.
The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office says surveillance on a home in the 1800 block of Park St. revealed multiple narcotics transactions.
On Wednesday evening, the suspect, identified as 55-year-old Leonel Zavala Sanchez, was seen leaving the home and a deputy reportedly conducted a traffic stop.
Sheriff’s officials say the deputy found approximately one pound of methamphetamine under the driver’s seat of the vehicle Sanchez was driving.
The sheriff’s office says a search of Sanchez’s home also revealed evidence consistent with the sales of narcotics, including a scale, a ledger used to record transactions, and an additional seven grams of meth.
Sanchez was booked into San Luis Obispo County Jail on suspicion of transporting a controlled substance for sale and possession of a controlled substance for sale.
