Petaluma police arrested two people during a traffic stop early Sunday morning, the driver for possession of drugs and his passenger for several outstanding warrants, police said. At around 1:30 a.m. police pulled over the car for a traffic violation at the Lutz Chevron Station on East Washington Street. Officers found the passenger, Lindsay Sanchez, 24, of Santa Rosa had four outstanding warrants for her arrest from Sonoma County for theft and drug related charges.
When officers removed Sanchez and the car’s driver, Mike Shea, 31, of Petaluma from the car, they found Sanchez also in possession of heroin, needles and a methamphetamine pipe, police said. While officers were speaking with Sanchez, Shea was detained in the back of the patrol car, and officers said they observed him attempting to hide a quarter-ounce of methamphetamine there.
Police arrested Sanchez for her outstanding warrants and for possession of drugs. She is being held in Sonoma County Jail without bail. Shea was arrested for transportation of methamphetamine and was booked into Sonoma County Jail with bail set at $40,000.
