Oroville man arrested on drug charges after Nevada County traffic stop

An Oroville man was arrested on drug sales charges after being stopped by a Nevada County Sheriff’s deputy Thursday night.

Danny Wayne Robinson, 60, was pulled over on Highway 20 near Cattle Drive for a mechanical violation at about 11:15 p.m., said Undersheriff Joe Salivar. The vehicle’s registration had expired, and Robinson was found to be on active federal probation, according to Salivar.

The deputy reportedly saw marijuana in the vehicle, but Robinson denied any other drugs and consented to a search.

During a search, five baggies with suspected methamphetamine residue were located, as was a quantity of meth divided into five baggies, totaling a little more than 13 grams, as well as more bags containing anti-anxiety medication.

Robinson was booked into county jail on suspicion of possessing a controlled substance, transportation and possession of a controlled substance for sale, possessing a controlled substance without a prescription, and being under the influence of a controlled substance. He was being held in lieu of $36,750 bail.
