Douglas County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a 27-year-old Redwood City man on suspicion of sale of a controlled substance last week after allegedly finding several small bags of cocaine and a bag containing several Ecstasy pills.

Deputies were dispatched to Harrah’s Lake Tahoe about 11:30 p.m. July 6 after security staff found a small bag of what was believed to be cocaine in Morgan Stogner’s right front coin pocket, according to a deputy’s report.

When deputies contacted Stogner, he admitted the cocaine was his and said he did not have any other drugs in his possession, according to the report.

After being taken to Douglas County’s Stateline jail facility, deputies allegedly located another small bag of cocaine on Stogner and a third bag of cocaine believed to be Stogner’s at the jail itself.

Deputy’s then searched the back seat of the vehicle Stogner was taken to jail in and found five additional small bags of cocaine and a bag containing eight Ecstasy pills, according to the report.

Stogner denied knowledge of the additional bags and asked for a lawyer. Each of the bags were similar in color and size, according to the report.

Stogner had $1,190 on him at the time of the arrest, according to the report. He was arrested on suspicion of possession of cocaine for sale and possession of Ecstasy.
