LINCOLN (CBS13) — Deputies say they have arrested a man in Lincoln who was allegedly found with hundreds of pills of drugs and a loaded handgun.

The Placer County Sheriff’s Office says, late Saturday night, a deputy pulled over a car along North Foothills and Sunset boulevards. Exactly what prompted the traffic stop is unclear.

After talking with the driver, identified as 36-year-old Stockton resident Dillon Smith, deputies searched his car and quickly discovered illicit drugs in a satchel that was on the passenger seat. In total, deputies say 695 Alprazolam pills, a baggie of heroin and a baggie of meth were discovered.

A loaded Glock pistol and a large amount of cash were also discovered, deputies say.
