Deschutes County deputies said the black 1995 Honda two-door passenger car driven by Jessy Mendoza, 23, of Sheridan, Washington, was pulled over near the intersection of Highway 97 and Maple Avenue for traffic infractions about 3:20 p.m., December 19.  When deputies observed several “indicators of criminal activity”, they asked for and received consent to search the vehicle, a news release stated.

Assisted by “Narc”, a Deschutes County canine drug-detecting dog, deputies found digital scales with drug residue along with $6,000 in cash, Sgt. Vance Lawrence reported.

Mendoza was taken into custody and lodged in the Deschutes County Jail where he is charged with possession of a Schedule II controlled substance and possession of a forged instrument.
