The San Luis Obispo Sheriff’s Office has a man in custody for allegedly possessing drugs for sale.
SLO Sheriff’s deputies discovered a large amount of narcotics hidden in a storage unit while investigating an unrelated incident last Thursday at a residence located on the 3000 block of Creston Road.
Around 4:15 p.m., deputies found one-and-a-half pounds of methamphetamine that was divided into 11 individual plastic bags, which were packaged for sale.
Deputies also discovered two bricks of a substance that investigators believed to be methamphetamine. In total around four-and-a-half pounds were seized. The substance was sent to the lab for analysis. Also in the storage unit, deputies discovered four plastic bags containing a total of 7.1 ounces of black tar heroin.
Investigators say the street value of the drugs is around $27,000. Detectives with the Sheriff’s Narcotics Unit arrested Chad Lee Fowler, 34, of Paso Robles.
Fowler was charged with possession of heroin for sale, possession of methamphetamine for sale and one enhancement for being in possession in excess of more than a kilo of a methamphetamine.
On a related note, Lacey Fowler, 29-year-old wife of Chad Fowler, was also arrested last week for her alleged involvement in a data breach at Cuesta College. On June 7 Lacey Fowler was arrested for battery, assault and disregard for a domestic relations court order.
