Sheriff's officials: Ukiah man arrested after meth, cash found in car

A Ukiah man was arrested Thursday on suspicion of drug-related charges after Mendocino County sheriff's deputies found methamphetamine and marijuana for sale in his car, sheriff's officials said.

Deputies stopped Tony Morfin, 43, in Redwood Valley after they noticed that the truck he was driving had expired registration, according to a Sheriff's Office news release.

Once they pulled Morfin over they smelled marijuana and noticed that he was acting nervous, sheriff's officials said. Searching his truck, they found a glass pipe used for smoking methamphetamine, a small amount of meth, a backpack with about $60,000 in cash, and a lock box with between 2 and 3 pounds of marijuana for sale.

Morfin was arrested and booked into the Mendocino County Jail on suspicion of possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and resisting an officer.
