The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office seized $7,000 worth of methamphetamine in two separate incidents on the North Coast this week.

The Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday that two San Luis Obispo residents were pulled over for a traffic stop Tuesday afternoon on northbound Highway 1 at Cayucos Drive. During a search of the vehicle, a deputy found about 5.5 ounces of meth, which investigators said has a street value of $5,500.

The driver, Guadalupe Pinedamanzanarez, 31, and Yadira Lopezreyes, 29, both of San Luis Obispo, were arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance for sale and booked into County Jail.

In a separate incident Wednesday morning, the sheriff’s Narcotics Unit served a search warrant at a mobile home on the 1900 block of Main Street in Morro Bay. Officers allegedly discovered about 1.5 ounces of methamphetamine worth an estimated $1,500 hidden under a shed.

Everardo Lozano Rodriguez, 46, of Paso Robles was arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance for sale and taken to County Jail.

As of Wednesday evening, jail logs did not indicate any of the three were still in custody.
