Two men, two women arrested on drug counts after traffic stop

by Amanda Aguilar

A traffic enforcement stop led to the arrest of four people on suspicion of drug-related offenses on June 16, according to police.

An officer stopped a vehicle on the 900 block of Hopkins Way for allegedly failing to use its turn signal and not stopping at the limit line of a stop sign.

The officer contacted the vehicle occupants, and one of the men had a search clause because of a prior conviction, police said.

Police reports allege the officer found heroin, methamphetamine, psilocybin and mushrooms in the possession of Thomas Gloede and Amber Lynn Montano.

Gloede, 26, and Montano, 25, were arrested for suspected possession of a controlled substance for sale, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of methamphetamine and violation of probation.

The other two vehicle occupants — Mitch Dunne and Courtney Montano — were arrested on suspicion of possessing a controlled substance. All four were booked at Santa Rita Jail in Dublin.
