Expired registration leads deputy to discover meth and counterfeit money

EL DORADO HILLS – Common sense dictates that it is never wise to draw attention to oneself when engaging in criminal behavior, as a Sacramento man was quickly reminded in late January. On Wednesday January 23rd, an El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office deputy observed a silver SUV vehicle driving on Highway 50 with expired registration tags. Due to the expired tags, the deputy pulled the vehicle over and made contact with the occupants.
Of the four people who occupied the vehicle, three were evidently on probation. One of that trio reportedly “had a no bail warrant for his arrest.”
35-year old Bill Chang from Sacramento was one of the passengers, and was found to have methamphetamine in his possession as well as drug paraphernalia and a large wad of counterfeit $100 bills.
