Expired registration leads to drug arrest

Danville police arrested a 26-year-old man from Tracy for allegedly carrying a controlled substance last week.

Police stopped Charles Dozhier in his blue Chevrolet on Hartz Avenue and San Ramon Valley Boulevard because his car registration was expired, said Police Sgt. Troy Craig.

Upon further investigation, the police found that his windshield was cracked, and he was not wearing his seatbelt. They also allegedly found a marijuana pipe, several bags of marijuana, prescription pills, morphine and Hydrocodone, according to police reports.

Craig added that Dozhier probably was in Danville on a construction job. He was arrested and taken to Martinez.

"This is a pretty cut-and-dry case," Craig said.
