ANDERSON, Calif. - A person on felony probation out of Shasta County on charges of escape and identity theft was arrested on Saturday during a traffic stop. Her passenger, a parolee from a kidnapping charge, was also arrested, all according to the Anderson Police Department.

The traffic stop occurred early in the morning on Saturday near northbound I-5 and Balls Ferry Road for what the Anderson Police Department said was a vehicle code violation.

The driver was identified as 40-year-old Desiree Mize of Shasta Lake City.  The passenger was identified as 34-year-old Roberto Sansalone of Redding. Sansalone was on parole from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR).

K-9 Ivan was one of the officers on the scene, who alerted for the presence of narcotics, said police. Officers said a plastic bag was discovered concealed inside the engine compartment. Inside of that bag, they said, were six additional bags containing over 150 grams of heroin, and one bag with more than 66 grams of methamphetamine.

Both Mize and Sansalone were placed under arrest on charges of possession and transportation of methamphetamine and heroin for the purpose of sales, in addition to probation and parole violations, according to the Anderson Police Department.
