A Wednesday afternoon probation search in the 1500 block of Langum Way by Manteca narcotics officers and probation agents yielded two men who are now facing drug charges, Manteca Police said.

Robert Daniel Morgan, 33, was arrested for suspicion of possession of methamphetamine for sale, a probation violation, and for a no bail warrant for not showing up to jail on a drug conviction, officers said.

Kenneth Bailey, 41, was also charged with possession of methamphetamine as well as having two felony warrants for his arrest.  

During the search of the Langum Way home, one detective answered a phone call from a prospective drug buyer who was on his way to buy drugs.  The detectives spotted his vehicle near the house and gave chase – pulling a 40-year old man over on Airport Way near the Highway 120 Bypass.

They searched his vehicle but found no drugs.  But, the yellow 2010 license tag on his rear plate proved not to belong to the car, and he didn’t have a driver’s license.  He was written a ticket and his car was towed for a 30-day hold.

Bailey and Morgan were expected to be transferred to San Joaquin County Jail later in the evening – expecting to be released soon because of the lack of room in the facility.
