Grover Beach man busted with nearly 2 pounds of fentany

May 30, 2023


San Luis Obispo County Sheriff deputies arrested a Grover Beach man they caught with a large amount of drugs including nearly two pounds of fentanyl on May 25.

After observing a vehicle weaving across lanes and driving erratically on Highway 101 near Paso Robles, deputies stopped the car. The driver, 50-year-old Craig Doll of Grover Beach, appeared to be under the influence.

After a sheriff’s K9 alerted to several areas of the car, deputies searched the vehicle and discovered Xanax, meth, 847 grams of packaged fentanyl as well as drug paraphernalia indicating narcotics sales. Investigators estimated the street value of the drugs at more than $84,000.

Deputies arrested Doll for possession for sale of narcotics, transporting narcotics for sale and being under the influence of a controlled substance. He is no longer in custody.

Please Help! I am really trying to understand why is LE, State and Federal Government allowing this deadly drug to flow so readily without intense recourse? How many have to die? Or is that the plan? The amount freely flowing over the border is inexplainable. Caught with enough to kill thousands and released? Why have the rules changed so drastically that you can get caught with a deadly poison, intended to poison, and just let go? Remember when they would arrest and hold for pot? And now you can have 847grams of fentanyl and get out of jail? WE are living in insanity!

He should be put away for a long time as the items he had is going to kill people just the same if you used a gun

Except that taking any drug is voluntary.

Why is not in custody with a $2 million bail?

Catch and release for attempted murder, via fetanyl, makes no sense. That amount of fentanyl could have killed many people. Sad that people keep voting for soft on crime politicians.

That last sentence…omg! 2 pounds and he’s not in custody??!!

In my opinion, the fentanyl crisis is a deliberate CBRNE (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosives) attack by the PRC upon the United States. Why aren’t we responding with all our potential?
