Ounce of heroin, drug paraphernalia seized after Truckee traffic stop

TRUCKEE, Calif. — Authorities say they found more than an ounce of suspected heroin this week during a traffic stop near Truckee.

Dylan Tanner Robert Surrock, 25, of Kings Beach; and Abbigail Starr Baker, 27, of Bremerton, Wash., were arrested during a Tuesday traffic stop on Highway 89 South, near Granite Flat Campground in Truckee, Nevada County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Bill Smethers said.

A California Highway Patrol officer stopped their vehicle for what Smethers called code violations. A drug dog then indicated contraband was in the car, leading to the discovery of suspected heroin, the lieutenant said.

The county’s Narcotics Task Force then responded to the scene and found more suspected heroin, paraphernalia and packaging materials, Smethers added.

Surrock is charged with possession of a narcotic controlled substance for sale, as well as sale or transport of a narcotic controlled substance, jail records state.

Baker faces a charge of possession of controlled substance paraphernalia, records state.

Both have since made their bond, reports state.
