ROSAMOND – A 40-year-old man was arrested Sunday night after a traffic stop in Rosamond revealed meth, cash, and an outstanding warrant, authorities said.
Marquis Davis was arrested on multiple criminal charges, including possession of a controlled substance for sale and driving on a suspended license, according to Kern County inmate records.
The traffic stop that led to the arrest happened around 9:20 p.m. Sunday, March 8, on the 5300 block of Rosamond Boulevard, according to a news release from the Kern County Sheriff’s Office.
