Fourth time a charm

POSTED August 21, 2009 9:33 p.m.
A Merced man was taken into custody Wednesday on narcotics charges, marking his fourth arrest since May, said Merced County Sheriff’s spokesman Deputy Tom MacKenzie.
Adam Aragon, 23, has been arrested on narcotics-related charges four times since May 19. Wednesday’s arrest came about when a Merced County Sheriff’s detective found methamphetamine hidden in a compartment in his motorcycle, which was in a storage yard from a previous arrest, MacKenzie said.
After obtaining a search warrant for the motorcycle, Detective Jason Cope found 15 grams of methamphetamine hidden in a secret compartment on the bike. He then obtained an arrest warrant for Aragon for possession and possession for sales of methamphetamine.   
At 10 a.m. Wednesday detectives were in the 2000 block of Dan Ward Avenue in Merced looking for Aragon. When they went up to a residence he is known to frequent, Detective Kevin Blake saw Aragon take off running from behind some bushes. After a short foot pursuit and a hit from a Taser, Aragon was taken into custody, MacKenzie said. Aragon had another 18 grams of methamphetamine on him when he was taken into custody.
Aragon was booked into the Merced County Jail on charges of possession and possession for sale of methamphetamine, resisting arrest, committing a felony while out on bail, convicted felon in possession of ammunition and violation of probation and remains without bail.
