MARIPOSA COUNTY — CHP officers were sidetracked from their duties assisting with road closures at the Detwiler Fire today when someone pulled up to a road block with drugs and a loaded gun.
CHP Mariposa posted this on their Facebook page after the incident.
“I do not recommend coming to a law enforcement operated road closure with large amounts of marijuana and loaded weapons in your possession.”
Just after 2:30 p.m., CHP says a man from Atwater contacted an officer working the Bear Valley and Exchequer Road closure.
The party was arrested and booked into the Mariposa County Jail on multiple felony charges.
“Time and resources taken from the greater emergency,” says CHP.
