MOORPARK — A Santa Paula man was being held Wednesday in connection with the possession of more than half a pound of high-grade methamphetamine, authorities said.
Manuel Minero Regalado, 20, was arrested after Ventura County sheriff's deputies pulled him over on Grimes Canyon Road in Moorpark about 9:20 p.m. Monday, said Sgt. Curt Rothschiller.
Authorities said Regalado was driving erratically westbound on Los Angeles Avenue.
While searching the car, deputies said they found methamphetamine with a street value of $29,000 in the glove compartment, Rothschiller said.
Regalado and two juvenile passengers were taken into custody on suspicion of possessing methamphetamine with intent to distribute, according to Rothschiller.
