MURRIETA (CBS) — Officers making a routine traffic stop Thursday arrested a Murrieta man after they allegedly  found methamphetamine and a large amount of money in his car, according to authorities.

Ramon Olmeda Jr., 33, was arrested for suspicion of possessing methamphetamine for sale, according to a sheriff’s department news release.

Officers stopped Olmeda’s silver Nissan Frontier in the 27600 block of Jefferson Avenue in Temecula for a vehicle code violation.

Olmeda consented to a search of his vehicle, and officers discovered 29.2 grams of meth and about $2,300 in cash, the release said.

During a subsequent investigation at Olmeda’s residence in the 33800 block of Nightingale Avenue in Murrieta, an additional 34.7 grams of meth and about another $600 in cash was also found, according to the report.

Olmeda was booked into the Southwest Detention Center in Murrieta.
