When they saw a car swerving erratically on Highway 395 up Sherwin Grade, Mono Sheriff Deputies pulled the car over to
check out the situation. As a result, officers said they arrested the driver and passenger, both Mammoth Lakes residents.
Saturday evening officers checked out the swerving vehicle. Regina Campbell, 18 of Mammoth was the driver. Daniel Milev, 35 of Mammoth was the passenger. Officers said that they noticed Milev appeared to be under the influence of a controlled substance.
Officers asked both Campbell and Milev to get out of the car. Deputies said after they searched the vehicle, Milev admitted to being under the influence of heroin. Deputies took both suspects to the jail in Bridgeport. Further investigation, officers said, revealed nearly an ounce of black tar heroin hidden in Milev’s clothing.
Deputies arrested Milev for possession and transportation of a controlled substance. They arrested Regina Campbell for assisting in the transportation of a controlled substance. Officers referred the case to the Mono District Attorney.
