A traffic stop in El Centro for a passenger allegedly not wearing a seat belt Thursday led to three arrests when 23 pounds of marijuana and more than a pound of heroin were found inside the vehicle.
Arrested were Frank Manjarez Carrillo, 21, Jesus Mora Rodriguez, 32, and Hilaria Verdugo, 51, all of Chula Vista.
All three were booked into the county jail. Bail for Carrillo and Rodriguez was set at $500,000 each. Bail information for Verdugo was unavailable this morning.
The arrests came about 10:30 a.m. when El Centro police Office Shannon Fox stopped a car because one of the passengers was not wearing a seat belt.
