A Santa Cruz man was arrested near Lake San Antonio on Saturday night after a park ranger noticed illegal drugs near his campsite, according to the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies arrived and found cocaine, LSD, marijuana and a prescription drug, according to the sheriff’s office. Buck was arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance, possession of methamphetamines, and possession of marijuana. He was booked into Monterey County Jail.
