Three Turlock men are facing a variety of drug-related criminal charges after a traffic stop for speeding led to the discovery of a large amount of narcotics in their possession.

The arrests of Kyle Jenson, 25, Jeremy Cobb, 26, and Joseph Yonan, 27, was put into motion shortly before noon on Monday when a Turlock police officer stopped the vehicle they were in for speeding in the area of Tully and Fulkerth roads.

Jensen was on probation and Cobb and Yonan were both out on bail for other charges, making all three men eligible for search, according to the Stanislaus County Superior Court records.

The search revealed each man was in possession of some narcotic, said Turlock Police spokesperson Officer Steve Rodrigues. All total officers found eight grams of heroin, 1.5 grams of cocaine, and 10.3 grams of methamphetamine. Officers also found drug paraphernalia and evidence of drug sales, including cash, Rodrigues said.

Cobb and Jenson were each arrested for possession of methamphetamine. Jensen also was arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia.

Yonan was arrested for possession of heroin for sale and possession of methamphetamine for sale, Rodrigues said. He also had four warrants out for his arrest. Just two weeks prior Yonan had been arrested on similar drug-related charges, according to court records.

Cobb and Jensen have been released on bail, while Yonan remains in custody at the Stanislaus County Jail.
