A traffic stop led to two arrests for heroin possession in Warrenton on Wednesday.
Clatsop County Sheriff’s Office deputies executed a traffic stop and search warrant on U.S. Highway 101 near Oregon Highway 104. They found more than two ounces of heroin, digital scales, several small syringes and over $1,400 in cash.
The driver — Marina Annette Evans, 39 — and a passenger — Antonio Silva-Garcia, 45 — were both arrested. Evans was charged with possession of heroin and Silva-Garcia was charged with delivery of a controlled substance. He had been on parole for a previous conviction on the same charge.
Deputies later searched Silva-Garcia’s residence at the Emerald Heights apartment complex. Additional charges may follow as the investigation continues.
