PLACER COUNTY —

A Grass Valley man caught the attention of two deputies in front of the sheriff’s North Lake Tahoe Station courtroom resulting in his arrest Monday.

Thomas Edward Weed, 47, was late for his court date when he drove into the station, parked in the wrong lot, parked in two spaces and ran into the courtroom.

The deputies found out Weed was driving on a suspended license and he was on probation. After exiting the courthouse Weed lied to deputies about driving there until they told him they saw his arrival.

When searching his car authorities found marijuana packed for sale, meth, hash, scales and other drug paraphernalia. He also had a police scanner monitoring the sheriff’s channel.

Weed was also found to be under the influence of meth.

He was booked into Placer County Jail on multiple charges with bail set at $45,000.
