MILL VALLEY — Marin County Sheriff’s Office deputies recently arrested two suspects involving drugs and confiscated a loaded firearm. One man is a suspected drug dealer who has been arrested twice this year.
His most recent arrest happened November 12. Deputies arrested 28-year-old Michael A. Felix of San Rafael, following a traffic stop. Felix was pulled over for making an illegal U-turn, near 110 East Strawberry Drive.
His troubles soon escalated. His vehicle was searched, and deputies found methamphetamine and cannabis. They also recovered drug paraphernalia, one digital scale and packaging materials.
Felix was transported to Marin County Jail, where he remains in lieu of $20,000 bond. Felix faces charges for possession and transportation of controlled substances for sale.
In an unrelated incident, deputies arrested Tariq J. Wade, 18 of Marin City, on November 6. Wade was taken into custody near 99 Heron Drive in unincorporated Strawberry, outside of Mill Valley.
Deputies on patrol stopped to investigate a parked vehicle emitting a strong cannabis odor. Wade was sitting inside the vehicle with another adult and two minors.
Deputies searched this vehicle and found an unregistered loaded firearm with a high-capacity magazine. They also found an open container of cannabis, a violation of health and safety codes.
Wade was arrested on weapons-related charges. In addition, he was arrested for child cruelty, disobeying a court order, and committing a felony while free on bail.
He presently remains in custody at Marin County Jail in lieu of $150,000 bond. In February, Wade was arrested on weapons-related charges, and possession of a controlled substance.
