2 arrested on multiple drug charges in GV

A San Diego and a Redding man remained behind bars Sunday night after Grass Valley police allegedly found them cruising around town with copious amounts of illegal narcotics.

“There were over 50 different articles of evidence attached to this report,” said Officer Colin Nelson. “They were definitely busy over the weekend.”

After observing a suspicious 2010 Nissan interact with multiple individuals in what appeared to be drug activity, officers pulled the vehicle over at approximately 9 p.m. to engage its driver, Redding resident Tyler Sky Tarbert, 22, and his passenger, San Diego resident Jesse Alexander Edelstein, 37, the registered owner of the vehicle, Nelson said.

Once stopped near the intersection of Sutton Way and Brunswick Road, officers discovered that Tarbert has a suspended license and Edelstein was on probation. Officers searched the vehicle and discovered numerous amounts of various prescription narcotics, freshly manufactured concentrated cannabis or honey oil and methamphetamine, Nelson said.

Both men were booked into the Nevada County jail on nine felony drug-related charges each, including possession of controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance for sale, transporting a controlled substance, possession of a narcotic for sale, possession of marijuana and possession of marijuana for sale, according to the jail’s booking log.

Tarbert and Edelstein were still in custody in lieu of $250,000 bail each as of press time Sunday.
