Probationer Arrested For Meth Possession, Burglary Tools After Being Found ‘Slumped Over’

A Reseda man was arrested Friday evening on multiple felony charges including forgery and violating his probation after deputies found him slumped over in his car, officials said.

On Friday, deputies patrolling just after midnight were checking gas stations in Canyon Country near Soledad Canyon and Sand Canyon Roads when they saw a car parked near the gas pumps with the driver slumped over, said Shirley Miller, spokesperson for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

“Concerned for the driver’s welfare, deputies attempted to stir the adult male,” Miller said.

After several tries, the driver finally woke up, Miller added.

After deputies learned that the adult male driver was on PCRS probation for assault-related charges, they took the opportunity to make sure he was in compliance with the terms of his release, he wasn’t, Miller said.

“Inside the vehicle, deputies found methamphetamine and burglary tools, along with mail and social security cards that were not in the suspect’s name,” Miller said.

Dean Manes 38, from Reseda was arrested on multiple forgery and narcotics charges.

Manes was arrested and transported to the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station’s jail and was given no bail, according to arrest records.

About Louie Diaz

Louie was born and raised in Santa Clarita. At the age of two Louie lost his vision due to a brain tumor. However, Louie doesn't let blindness stop him from doing what ever it is he wants to accomplish. Growing up some of his favorite hobbies were wood working, fishing and riding bikes. Louie graduated from College of the Canyon in December of 2017, with a Broadcast Journalism degree. Growing up Louie has always wanted to be a fire fighter or a police officer, but because of his blindness Louie knew that wouldn't work. Louie has always loved listening to police and fire radio traffic, using a scanner, and he figured if he was going to listen to the scanner so much, he should do something with it.
