A 32-year-old Salinas man has been sentenced to four years in prison for possession of methamphetamine with the intent to sell, Monterey County District Attorney Dean Flippo announced Friday.
On Aug. 31, 2016, Monterey County Sheriff’s detectives found Jesus Guadalupe Flores sitting in his car in the parking lot of the Motel 6 at 1257 De La Torre St. in Salinas.
The detectives recognized Flores as being on probation and discovered he had two active warrants for his arrest, prosecutors said. During a search of his vehicle, detectives discovered 25 grams of methamphetamine, coin-sized baggies and a digital scale.
Prosecutors said Flores also had several text messages on his cellphone related to drug sales. On Friday, Flores was sentenced to two years in prison and his sentence was doubled under California’s Three Strikes Law since Flores was convicted of a serious felony in 2006, prosecutors said.
