ITEMS seized from a traffic stop in Westminster (WPD photo).

A Westminster police officer on patrol stopped a “suspicious” vehicle over the weekend and made two drug arrests.

According to the WPD, the officer was in the area of Moran Street and Bolsa Avenue when he came upon the vehicle. He noticed that the female passenger had several drug paraphernalia  items on her lap “in plain view.”

The male driver consented to a vehicle search during which the officer found a digital scale, about $1000 in cash, 33 grams of methamphetamine, 9 grams of wax (used to conceal drugs) and one gram of fentanyl. 

Both occupants of the vehicle was taken into custody without incident.
