Teen arrested for vehicle theft and heroin
A 19-year-old was arrested in town Monday after a traffic stop by police revealed the teen was driving a stolen car and in possession of heroin, authorities say.
On Monday at about 1:25 p.m., Paso Robles Police Department officers conducted a traffic stop on a 1991 Honda Accord along the 1100 block of Black Oak Drive, Paso Robles.
