VACAVILLE — A Fairfield man was arrested Monday after police reportedly found methamphetamine in the vehicle after a traffic stop.

Tomas Ruiz, 49, of Fairfield, was arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance, transportation of a controlled substance and an outstanding warrant for driving without a license.

Ruiz was allegedly spotted speeding around 5 p.m. on the 500 block of Rocky Hill Road. When he was pulled over, he gave the officer a California identification card. Police said he was an unlicensed driver with a $5,000 warrant for that same offense.

When police searched Ruiz, they reportedly found a small amount of methamphetamine on him and a quarter-pound of it in his vehicle. The drugs were reported to have a street value of $6,000 and were packaged in a manner consistent with drug sales, police said.

He is being held at Solano County Jail with a bail of $28,333.
