Traffic stop in Williams leads to drug arrest

A routine traffic stop in Williams resulted in the arrest of a 34-year-old Shingletown man on four felony drug-related charges, in addition to one misdemeanor.

According to Williams Police Sgt. Daniel Mata, Jonathan Stanley Penrod was coming through town on Dec. 4 at about 10:51 PM when he ran a stop sign at the southbound off-ramp of Interstate 5 at Highway 20.

“One of our officers saw that and conducted a traffic stop, which ended up being at the Orv’s gas station,” Mata said.

During the officer’s investigation, he learned that Penrod’s license was suspended, as was that of his passenger, Karen Tyler, of Oak Run.

“They were initially issued citations, and had their car towed,” Mata said.

While Williams Police Officers were still on scene conducting an inventory search of the car for towing and storage, they began discovering “contraband,” Mata added, including 2.85 pounds of suspected marijuana, enough methamphetamine to constitute possession for sale (about 3.645 grams), suspected psilocybin mushrooms, scales, plastic bags, and glass pipes used for smoking methamphetamine, with enough residue to be considered contraband.

“Through the officer’s training experience and through the discovery of the contraband, they had enough probable cause to arrest (Penrod) for sale and transportation,” Mata said, adding that Tyler, the passenger, was cited and released for misdemeanor possession and paraphernalia.
