Four men arrested on narcotics and stolen property charges after a traffic stop in Phelan

PHELAN, Calif. ( — A traffic stop in Phelan resulted in the arrest of four men for narcotics sales and possession of stolen property, officials said.

It happened on March 29, 2023, at about 2:00 pm, when Deputy J. Delano stopped a black Scion on Wilson Ranch Road in Phelan, for California vehicle code violations.

Officials said that during a search of the vehicle, deputies located methamphetamine, fentanyl, cash, and packaging consistent with the sales of narcotics. 

The driver of the vehicle, 26-year-old Sergio Estrada, a resident of Phelan, and passenger, 27-year-old Andrew Saucedo, a resident of Muscoy, were arrested for possession of narcotics for sales and transportation of narcotics for sales. They were booked at High Desert Detention Center.

As a result of this arrest, deputies authored a search warrant for Estrada’s residence, located in the 11200 block of Nugget Road in Phelan. At about 9:30 am, the following morning the warrant was authored at the location.

At the residence, deputies recovered a stolen trailer and a stolen Yamaha motorcycle.

Ruben Saucedo, 52, a resident of Muscoy, and Abraham Moreno, 35, a resident of Colton, who were at the residence at the time the search warrant was served, were arrested without incident for possession of stolen property.
