A 25-year-old Albuquerque man who was arrested on drug charges in June will be going to pretrial Feb. 24.
On June 17, 2015, Los Alamos police patrolling the area of East Road responded to a report of an alleged reckless driver. When officers pulled over a vehicle driven by Fernando Trujillo, they noted that he was going two miles over the 50-mile-an-hour speed limit, and was on the wrong side of the road.
Officers reported that Trujillo, “seemed dazed and confused and his speech seemed labored,” according to court documents.
When police searched his car, they allegedly found a glass pipe used for smoking, a small container with marijuana in it and a clear baggie filled with 12.3 grams of marijuana. Police also confiscated .4 grams of heroin as well as various items of drug paraphernalia, including four needles, a burned spoon and a “Q-tip.” Police also recovered a small, palm-sized rubber ball that contained two Clonidine pills. They also found another glass smoking pipe, folded up pieces of burned tinfoil and some brass knuckles.
Court records also indicated that Trujillo had used marijuana and heroin at around 11 p.m. the night before. Police had pulled him over around 6 a.m.
