RED BLUFF, Calif. - A 48-year-old transient was arrested for narcotics possession when he was confronted by officers in the parking lot of Taco Bell on Main Street in Red Bluff as they were investigating a recent assault. The arrest occurred early Saturday morning, after 12:30 a.m.

Red Bluff police said one of their officers contacted Norman Beckley in the parking lot and observed a small pouch sitting next to him. The officer asked Beckley if he could look inside the pouch. According to police, Beckley handed the officer the pouch so it could be opened up.

Over an ounce of methamphetamine was located inside of the pouch inside of a plastic Ziploc bag, according to police.

Beckley was taken into custody for possession of the methamphetamine and for transporting the narcotic. He was also found to be in possession over more than $1943 dollars which  officers believe was "consistent with the sale of narcotics." This caused a new charge for Beckley, for the sale of the methamphetamine.

The Red Bluff Police Department said Beckley admitted to selling the methamphetamine in the City of Red Bluff.

He was booked into the Tehama County Jail and his bail was set at $15,000.
