A motorist was charged Tuesday with cocaine possession and other violations stemming from a traffic stop on Highway 29 near Napa, according to court records.

On March 8, Sinai Rivas Castro, 25, of Calistoga, was driving northbound on Highway 29 near Oak Knoll Avenue when he was stopped at 1:15 a.m. after a California Highway Patrol saw his car weave on the roadway, according to court records. Castro allegedly smelled of alcohol, according to the CHP.

    I don't get it! If he was arrested near Oak Knoll, the arresting officer and/or an officer at the jail should have performed a thorough search. So how did he bring drugs into the jail?
