“Meth destroys families and individual lives and continues to be a focus of the narcotics team. I am extremely pleased with the results of this case. This bust gets a significant dealer off the streets and his supply seized. Meth has no place in Mariposa, and I am proud of my team for continuing to keep our communities safe,” remarked Sheriff Jeremy Briese.

The owner of the vehicle, Jerry Tanner, was arrested for felony possession of a restricted, dangerous drug for sale and ammunition by a prohibited person.
