Nevada man faces possession charges following traffic stop

A Nevada man was arrested and faces several charges after officers allegedly discovered “a large amount of methamphetamine within the vehicle,” along with various paraphernalia.

About 9:50 p.m. Thursday, April 1, an officer with the Susanville Area CHP office observed a green Chevrolet Impala with no license plate to the rear of the vehicle, traveling westbound on Skyline Road approaching Highway 139.

When the driver turned right onto Highway 139, he allegedly made an unsafe turning movement, taking the turn much too wide and crossed over the double parallel solid yellow limes that separate the northbound and southbound lanes of Highway 139.

A traffic stop was made and the officer contacted the driver, who was later identified as Frank Kenyon, of Henderson, Nevada.

While speaking with the Kenyon, the officer observed he allegedly displayed signs and symptoms of drug intoxication. The officer advised Kenyon to exit the vehicle and subsequently conducted a series of field sobriety tests on Kenyon. Kenyon was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence.

While conducting an inventory of the Chevrolet prior to its impound by Susanville Tow, officers allegedly discovered a large amount of methamphetamine within the vehicle. Officers also discovered numerous small ziploc bags, two digital scales and drug paraphernalia. The following is a list of charges involved in this incident: Possession of methamphetamine for sales; Transportation of methamphetamine for sales; Possession of methamphetamine; Possession of drug paraphernalia; and DUI-Drugs.
