June 13, 2015
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.
