The officer requested a sheriff K9 deputy be sent to the location. The K9 conducted a sniff of the sedan and alerted to the odor of a controlled substance. The officers then conducted a probable cause search of the vehicle and located three duffel bags containing approximately 70 pounds of processed marijuana.
The driver of the vehicle, Monica A. Rendon, age 33, of Tucson, AZ did not have a doctor’s recommendation for the use of marijuana. Rendon was arrested by the Trinity Narcotics Task Force for possession of marijuana for sale and transportation and was taken to the Trinity County jail.
