During a follow-up investigation into an unrelated incident at a residence located in the 3000 block of Creston Road in Paso Robles, investigators discovered a large amount of narcotics hidden in a storage unit.

Also discovered in the storage unit, four plastic bags containing a total of 7.1 ounces of black tar heroin. Altogether, the methamphetamine and heroin have a street value of $27.000.
