RED BLUFF, Calif. - Tuesday at 3:45 p.m., the CHP found 488 grams of suspected black tar heroin after an officer performed a traffic stop on a vehicle travelling north on I-5 past Hooker Creek for speeding. 

The CHP office says a 17-year-old boy from Albany, OR, drove the vehicle. 

The officer suspected the juvevile of criminal activity, and had a K9 unit search the car. 

The dog alerted officers to the passenger door.

After searching that area of the car, the suspected heroin was found that has a street value of around $50,000. 

The suspect was arrested for possession of a controlled substance and was booked into the Tehama County Juvenile Detention Center.

Light scattered showers are on tap for the start of your Thursday, and I'm tracking heavier rain ahead from Thursday afternoon through mid day Friday. We'll have a lull in our wet pattern late Friday through early Saturday, but even heavier rain and snow will return this weekend and persist into next week. Major travel impacts will be possible across northern California from this wet weather.
