Man Driving Around With A Big Bucket of Pot In His Car Arrested
A Vacaville police officer routinely patrolling the 1000 block of Orange Drive near I-80 observed a man sitting alone in a car with no license plates in the Quality Inn hotel parking lot.
The officer contacted this man, and as they spoke detected a rather strong smell of marijuana emanating from the vehicle, a Vacaville P.D. press release stated. Due to the smell, the officer conducted a probable cause search of the vehicle and discovered a five gallon bucket of processed marijuana ready for sale. The press release further stated that a subsequent search of the entire vehicle uncovered evidence of intent to sell the marijuana.
Evan Anderson, 25, currently a transient of Vacaville, was then arrested and lodged at the Solano County Jail on charges of possessing marijuana for sale.
Records show that on February 23 this year, Anderson and an accomplice, Tony Ryan Lorenzana, 28, were arrested on charges of conspiracy and attempted burglary, grand theft, and possession of burglar’s tools. They were picked up by Vacaville Police at 9:54 in the evening at Cooks Collision, a business on Union Way in Vacaville. Lornezana was reportedly unemployed and living in Winters at the time, and Anderson resided in rural northern Vacaville, according to the arrest reports.
