LINCOLN, Calif. (KTXL) — The Lincoln Police Department said they arrested a Sacramento man that was on probation at 3:25 a.m. on Friday after he was allegedly found with 40 grams of fentanyl.
Travis Richardson, 34, of Sacramento was found in possession of 40 grams of fentanyl, a digital scale and over $1,900 in cash, according to police.
Richardson was booked into the South Placer Jail and faces charges for possession of narcotics for sale, committing a felony while released on bail and destruction of evidence, according to police.
