On November 18th at 9 p.m., three Placer County Sheriff’s deputies conducted a foot patrol in a North Auburn mobile home park. They observed a suspicious vehicle in the parking lot and identified the driver as 29-year old Nicholas Vandenriesche, of Auburn.
While one of the deputies was talking to the passenger, he observed a glass smoking pipe in plain view. A search of the vehicle revealed 38 grams of methamphetamine, 66 small zip lock baggies, a digital scale, and a large amount of cash.
Vandenriesche was arrested for the possession and transportation of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.”
