A San Luis Obispo man was arrested Tuesday after a search of his room yielded approximately $50,000 worth of drugs, mostly ecstasy tablets.
Anthony Wong, 26, was already on felony probation for transportation of narcotics for sale when the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Narcotics Unit conducted a search of a room he rented at a home in the 1500 block of West Newport Street, according to a news release from the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office.
Detectives discovered 788 ecstasy tablets, five grams of heroin and a small amount of marijuana. Ecstasy, an illegal stimulant, can cause a user’s core body temperature to spike and lead to death, the news release said.
Jail logs show that Wong is being held without bail at the San Luis Obispo County Jail. He has been charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance for sale, one count of possession of marijuana for sale, and committing a drug offense within 1,000 feet of a school — in this case, C.L. Smith Elementary School, the Sheriff’s Office said. All counts are felonies.
