Truckee man arrested for having 3lbs of marijuana

Police arrested a 20-year-old Truckee man last week on suspicion of possession of several illegal drugs, including three pounds of marijuana, according to the police.

The Truckee Police Department and the regional narcotic enforcement team searched the Glenshire rental of Kyle James Rytter on March 23 after a couple neighbors reported “possible drug activity” at Rytter’s home, according to Truckee police Chief Scott Berry.

Rytter rents the 10219 Worchester Drive space from his parents, who live next door, Berry said.

Officers found three pounds of packaged marijuana, a scale, “pay-owe” records, a marijuana grow schedule, an SKS assault rifle with more than 400 rounds of ammunition, 49 syringes, suspected steroids, and other illegal drugs, including OxyContin, according to Truckee police.

All of the drugs were sent to the California Department of Justice for Analysis.

Two female teenagers, ages 14 and 16, were also in the home during the search, police said. They were released and their parents notified.

Police have information that Rytter was selling the drugs, but they don’t have evidence, Berry said.

Rytter was booked in Nevada County Jail in Truckee. He was released on $10,000 bail. He could face charges for possession of illegal drugs and firearms, Berry said.

The suspect has a previous juvenile theft record with the Truckee Police Department, Berry said.

The investigation remains open, and police anticipate there will be more arrests. Members of SLEDNET, the regional narcotics task force, are also helping with the investigation.

Police are running the names on the “pay-owe” records found in Rytter’s home for additional information, Berry said.
