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.
