SONORA -- A Turlock man was arrested in Sonora after police say they discovered nearly a pound of marijuana in his vehicle, which had come to a stop after the driver ran over a curb near Sonora High School.
A witness called the Sonora Police Department last week reporting they had seen a driver cross over a double-solid line and nearly striking oncoming traffic. The vehicle eventually came to a stop near the school at 430 N. Washington St.
When officers contacted the driver, Kevin Davis, 19, of Turlock, they suspected he was under the influence of a controlled substance, according to Chief Mark Stinson. They say they also noticed a strong odor of pot coming from inside the vehicle.
