Two Bishop men were arrested on suspicion of drug charges on Monday, March 17, after they were caught in a drug investigation on Lower Rock Creek Road at the former Paradise Lodge and trailhead to Lower Rock Creek trail.

The two men, David Hale, 30, and Timothy Brooks, 22, were arrested by the Mono County Narcotics Enforcement Team (MONET), with the assistance of the Mono County Sheriff’s Office and investigators from the Mono County District Attorney’s Office, all of whom were following a lead regarding a methamphetamine distributor in Mono and Inyo counties.

The incident occurred on the evening of Monday, March 17, at approximately 4 p.m. when MONET agents, armed with information of a pending narcotics sale, met Hale and Brooks at the parking area of the Paradise Lodge trailhead near Lower Rock Creek Road and detained them.

After several alerts inside the vehicle by narcotics detection K-9 dog, Tara, a physical search of the vehicle discovered and recovered an ounce of methamphetamine and a glass smoking pipe hidden in a wash mitten used in car detailing. Hale and Brooks were placed under arrest and transported to the Mono County Jail in Bridgeport without incident.

Hale was arrested for transportation of a controlled substance; transportation of a controlled substance for sale; possession of a controlled substance; possession of a controlled substance for sale; possession of controlled substance paraphernalia; and conspiracy to commit a crime.

Brooks 22, of Bishop, was arrested for transportation of a controlled substance; transportation of a controlled substance for sale; possession of a controlled substance; possession of a controlled substance for sale; and conspiracy to commit a crime.

Both men are in custody with charges pending with the Mono County District Attorney’s Office.
