“On July 10th at 6 p.m., a deputy was driving on Penryn Road just before Boulder Creek Road when he came upon a vehicle parked alongside the roadway.
The driver informed the deputy that they were having car trouble. While looking inside the vehicle, the deputy noticed methamphetamine in plain sight. Deputies searched the car and found over 77 grams of methamphetamine, one gram of heroin, 161 oxycodone pills, a digital scale and empty baggies.
Through an investigation, it was determined the drugs belonged to 62-year old Kenneth Phrampus of Reno, Nevada. Phrampus had walked away from the car when he saw the deputy coming down the road. Deputies began to search for Phrampus and found him hiding behind a wall at the Penryn Plaza business park.
Phrampus was arrested for possession and transportation of methamphetamine and narcotics for sale.”
