A routine traffic stop in Paso Robles led to the arrest of a 19-year-old Colorado man on suspicion of vehicle theft, possession of stolen property and possession of about 0.8 grams of heroin.
At about 1:30 p.m. Monday, Paso Robles police officers stopped Jacob Levi Arvik of Colorado Springs, Colo., in the 1100 block of Black Oak Drive. A check on the vehicle resulted in officers discovering the 1991 Honda Accord stolen out of Arizona.
According to a department news release, Arvik matches the description of a suspect seen walking away from a stolen car recovered in Paso Robles only a few days prior.
Police said Arvik had an outstanding felony arrest warrant issued in Colorado, as well as the heroin and several items allegedly stolen in reported thefts in San Luis Obispo County.
Arvik was booked into county jail on charges of vehicle theft, possession of a controlled substance, receiving stolen property, possession of burglary tools, and possession of drug paraphernalia. As of Tuesday afternoon, he remained in custody on $20,000 bail.
