Wilfredo R. Reyes-Ramirez was arrested Wednesday evening in Mesa and was booked on three charges of drug possession and failure to provide a valid identification. According to police, Mr. Reyes-Ramirez was originally stopped by an officer for failing to use his turn signal while exiting a driveway on Country Club Drive between Brown and McKellips Roads. Mesa police said Mr. Reyes-Ramirez did not have identification on him, and he gave the officers permission to search himself and his vehicle. When officers searched his vehicle, they found $6206 in a bag in the glove box. Officers also found a stuffed teddy bear on the passenger side floor. Police observed that the bear’s pants were ripped and there were pieces of stuffing on the outside of the bear. When police searched the bear, they found seven bags of meth, about 26.1 grams, worth $800, stuffed inside the bear.
