Clearlake man arrested for false registration tab, drugs

YOLO COUNTY – A Clear Lake man was arrested in Yolo County earlier this month for allegedly possessing drugs and a counterfeit vehicle registration tab.

Jack Oliver, 38, was taken into custody on Dec. 18 following a traffic stop, according to Sgt. Lance Faille of the Yolo County Sheriff's Department.

Faille reported that at about 6:30 p.m. Dec. 18 sheriff's deputies stopped Oliver on Interstate 5 north of Zamora.

Riding with Oliver was 55-year-old Richard Oakley, a transient who had a felony warrant out of Napa County for methamphetamine possession. Faille said deputies found Oakley in possession of hashish and less than an ounce of marijuana.

During the search, deputies determined that Oliver had a counterfeit registration tab, which is a felony, and they additionally found five ounces of marijuana in the vehicle's engine compartment that Oliver allegedly admitted belonged to him, Faille said.

Both Oliver and Oakley were booked into the Yolo County Jail, according to Faille's report.
