Bicyclist carries 30 grams of meth and loaded gun in backpack

WEAVERVILLE – What started as a simple “enforcement stop” of a bicyclist, lead to the discovery of much more serious crimes.  During the enforcement stop conducted by the California Highway Patrol on the night of Wednedsay May 1st,  30-year-old Jeffrey Hall Jr. turned out to be engaging in illegal activity.

Trinity County Sheriff’s deputies arrived to assist the CHP, along with their K-9 officer Chase.  A “free air sniff” alerted law enforcement to drugs, and so the deputies searched Hall’s backpack.

Inside of the backpack they found 30.5 grams of methamphetamine and a loaded handgun.

Hall was therefore arrested on charges of possession of meth for sales, being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition, and transportation of meth.
