ORLAND, Calif. – A man is waking up behind bars after being arrested on drug charges.

Around 7:55 p.m. Wednesday, an Orland police officer and his K9 partner, Dutch, were returning to Orland when they said they found a 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 towing a horse trailer that did not have any running or brake lights. 

Authorities said during a traffic stop, 41-year-old Oscar Estrada, of Berry Creek, admitted to having around 80 pounds of marijuana in his trailer and a large amount of cash.

The Glenn County Major Crimes Task Force arrived and took over the case.

Inside the vehicle, authorities located 11 large trash bags of marijuana along with over $12,000 in cash, a meth pipe, and a switchblade knife.

Estrada was arrested and booked into the Glenn County Jail. The vehicle and contents were turned over to the Task Force for their investigation.
