Sonora, CA — 48 year old Lindon Martin Hill of 20165 Canyon View Drive in Tuolumne was arrested by Tuolumne County Sheriff´s deputies early Sunday morning at the intersection of Hwy 108 and O´Byrnes Ferry Rd.
At 5:30 Sgt. Craig Davis was watching a suspicious vehicle when he was joined by a Highway Patrolman. After making contact with the vehicle´s occupants the officers realized the driver had given them a false name. Within the vehicle officers discovered drug paraphernalia and other indications of illegal drug use.
Hill attempted to use his brother´s name so as not to be cited for driving with a suspended license. Hill was booked on charges of being in possession of controlled substance paraphernalia, driving with a suspended license and providing a false identification to a peace officer.
Hill was cited and released with a promise to appear for his court date.
