OLIVEHURST, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a taco truck in the northern California town of Olivehurst was offering dangerous side dishes on a secret menu: methamphetamine and pot.
Martin Horan, commander of the Yuba-Sutter NET-5 task force, told the Marysville Appeal-Democrat that more than $10,000 in drugs was seized Wednesday.
Horan said agents investigated the truck for three months after hearing about the secret menu.
After searching addresses connected to the taco truck operation, agents found nearly four ounces of meth, 160 pot plants and $8,500 cash.
Arrested were 22-year-old Juan Paez-Olague; his brother Ernesto, 25; and 40-year-old Saturnino Rodriguez.
The brothers were being held in Yuba County Jail on $50,000 bail each on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance for sale and other charges. Rodriguez was not jailed for medical reasons.
