An Oregon State Police (OSP) traffic stop Tuesday in Cascade Locks led to the discovery and seizure of cocaine, methamphetamine and cash.
 
On May 26, 2009 at approximately 11:00 p.m. an OSP senior trooper stopped a suspected DUII driver in the Cascade Locks area. During contact with the driver, identified as ANTONIO CERVANTES CASTELLANOS, age 55, from The Dalles, the trooper saw him attempt to conceal something which was later identified as a small amount of cocaine. Despite his efforts to resist arrest, he was taken into custody.
 
Subsequent investigation led to the discovery of approximately 2 ounces of methamphetamine, 1/4 lb. of cocaine, and nearly $1,450 cash.
 
He was lodged at the Northern Oregon Regional Correctional Facility (NORCOR) in The Dalles for:
  • Unlawful Possession and Distribution of a Controlled Substance - Cocaine
  • Unlawful Possession and Distribution of a Controlled Substance - Methamphetamine
 
NORCOR advised he bailed out this morning pending an appearance in Hood River County Circuit Court.
