A Paso Robles man is accused of stashing $27,000 worth of methamphetamine and black tar heroin in his storage shed.

Around 4:15 p.m. Thursday, San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office investigators searched a home in the 3000 block of Creston Road in Paso Robles. The search was a follow-up investigation unrelated to the Thursday’s drug bust, according to a sheriff’s office news release.

During the search, investigators found approximately 4.5 pounds of meth and 7.1 ounces of black tar heroin in a storage shed. About 1.5 pounds of the methamphetamine were packaged for sale in 11 plastic bags.

The rest of the meth was found in the form of two bricks. Investigators found the heroin inside four plastic bags.

Detectives arrested 34-year-old Chad Fowler. Fowler faces charges of possession of heroin for sale and possession of methamphetamine for sale, with an enhancement for possessing more than one kilo of methamphetamine.

Fowler is in San Luis Obispo County Jail with bail set at $200,000, according to the sheriff’s website.

Our county has no concept of the depth of addictions people are dealing with. We need better care of our residents who suffer from addictions. If we had this care, there would be no place for these pushers! Of course, this does include alcohol, and we have those pushers on every block!!

With all the overdoses we have seen here just in this year from heroin alone, you would think losing good friends and seeing families going thru such heart ache would be enough to change these dealers, at least those with a heart. I will pray for his change of heart. He has to know how many people suffer while he provides meth and heroin, how many kids are left to raise themselves while they’re parents fall deeper into addiction. I wish I could scoop up the kids left behind in the wake of family carnage and give them love and family as they deserve. Thank goodness these drugs are off the street. Praying for better times.

This man is an purveyor of death, crime and sadness. He profits from despair. Society and the law should do what it takes to prevent him from spreading his cancer to our children.

purveyor of drugs formerly marketed as the latest cure by pharmaceutical companies?

Government has no business regulating this expression of free enterprise any more than they should restrict land development. Free market, baby, ANYTHING else is socialism.

5,4,3,2,1 until the first post about how legalizing drugs will make everything better.

its not so much about legalizing them as it is to treating the problem, rather than trying to make money off it. if you treat the addicts rather than locking them up, it has proven in other countries to help quite a bit. a town on the east coast got so bad, they just started allowing addicts to turn in paraphernalia/drugs etc free of prosecution as long as they seek treatment. well see how it works, not a perfect world, but if you don’t have addicts, you wont have guys like this either.

how legalizing drugs will make everything better.


Not all drugs. Just marijuana. It’s incredibly over-simplistic to put all things under one label. You lose all credibility by doing so.

Aspirin is a drug. Caffeine is a drug. Alcohol is a drug. Should we make them all illegal because they are drugs? Will that make everything better?

Dude, you’re pretty chunky for meth and heroin. I thought you people were thin.

He’s the seller, not the user probably.
