CHICO, Calif. – The Chico Police Department said they have arrested a suspected drug dealer. The man they arrested is 56-year-old Stoney King who was already on supervision for “previous narcotics convictions.”
Police said Friday night at approximately 10:00 p.m. an officer stopped a vehicle and started a conversation with King at the Arco gas station on W. 9th Street downtown.
After the officer determined that King was on supervision they conducted a search of him and his vehicle. They said they did not find any contraband in the vehicle.
Police said King told officers he was homeless but an investigation revealed he lived in a home on the 1000 block of East Avenue.
After a search of the home, officers arrested King. They said they found 6.1 grams of heroin, 1.9 pounds of crystal methamphetamine, and other narcotics-related items.
King was charged with possession for the sale of methamphetamine and heroin in addition to a charge for violating the terms of his supervision program.
King was booked into the Butte County Jail.
