Bond has been set at $10,000 cash for a California man arrested in Brown County following a traffic stop during which drugs, cash and a stolen handgun were found, according to police.
Rigoberto A. Hernandez, 30, from Los Angeles was arrested Jan. 21 following the traffic stop during which Neko, one of the Aberdeen Police Department drug detection dogs, indicated the presence of drugs, according to a news release from the police department.
A search of the vehicle found 157 grams of methamphetamine, 11 ecstasy pills and 117 pills of suspected fentanyl, according to the release. The police department search also found $6,400 in cash and the handgun. Hernandez made his initial appearance this week during which he asked for a court-appointed attorney. He did not enter pleas.
He is facing multiple felony charges, including possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute, possession of fentanyl with the intent to distribute, possession of a stolen firearm, possession of ecstasy and possession of a gun while having a prior drug conviction. He faces two misdemeanor charges -- driving without insurance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
A preliminary hearing has been set for Thursday.
