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.Do you have a news tip?
