San Francisco – According to a department press release, police officers Archilla and Espinosa were patrolling the area near 66 Brook Street at 7:28 pm on Saturday February 21st when they spotted a vehicle with only one functioning headlight.
Upon making a stop, they asked the driver, thirty-one year old Efren Delgado of San Jose, for his appropriate paperwork. Delgado was unable to furnish a driver’s license but offered an ID. After officers ran a records check, they found that Delgado’s license had been suspended in 2010. The officers also learned that he was on probation for possession of marijuana for sale out of Santa Clara County. Delgado had been arrested in November of 2013, according to Santa Clara County records. At the time he was residing in Fairfield.
Officers searched the car and found a significant amount of marijuana, which they believed to be packaged for sale. Delgado was also charged with vehicle code and probation violations.
The arrest occurred less than a week after proponents of recreational marijuana legalization met for the International Cannabis Business Conference in downtown San Francisco.
