TRINITY — A phone tip to the Trinity County Sheriff’s Office on April 18 led to two arrests and the seizure of a large quantity of drugs.

Sheriff Woody Wallace said his office received a tip about two suspicious subjects with narcotics at the Lake Country Inn on Robb Street a little before 9:30 p.m. on the 18th.

“There were people from Oregon coming through here, and concerned residents called in a tip to the SO, and these people had brought some pretty dangerous stuff with them,” Wallace said.

Officers arrived at the scene, executed a search warrant and found 2 pounds of THC wax, methamphetamines, more than 5 pounds of marijuana and a large quantity of fentanyl pills.

Arrested were Steven Matthew Bustamante, 33, and Arliss Janene Young, 33, on charges of possession of marijuana, a third-degree felony, and possession of THC, possession of methamphetamines and possession of fentanyl, all first-degree felonies.

“This is not the state to come to with your dope, and this certainly ain’t the county to come to,” Wallace said.
