CHICO, Calif. - A man who was wanted in Glenn County on a drug-related charge was arrested in Chico on Saturday morning by the California Highway Patrol (CHP).

CHP officers were responding to a report of a broken-down red mini-van on the northbound off-ramp of Highway 99 at East Ave. when they discovered that the man with the vehicle had an outstanding warrant.

They arrested the man, 39-year-old Rockford Bell of Corning, and then took him to the Butte County Jail.
