VICTORVILLE, Calif. – A Victorville area transient was attested for the possession of methamphetamine, crack cocaine, marijuana and other drugs.
On Thursday, July 4, 2019, at 10:53 p.m. a deputy with the Victorville Station observed a vehicle at the Circle K in the 15800 block of Mojave Drive with a man, woman, and a toddler. The male and female exited the black Dodge Charger, which was parked at the gas pump. Both of them went inside the store, while the 2-year-old child remained alone in the vehicle.
Concerned for the safety of the unattended small child, the deputy approached the vehicle to see if she was safe. While peeking into the window the deputy noticed drugs in the storage area of the vehicle’s door. When the two returned the deputy made contact with them. Marques Walker, 31, was identified as the owner of the vehicle and the child’s father. While searching the vehicle, deputies found over 90 grams of methamphetamine, over 30 grams of crack cocaine, over 1800 grams of marijuana, Xanax and Ecstasy. They also located paraphernalia associated with drug use and sales, and a large amount of cash.
Walker was arrested and booked at High Desert Detention Center for possession of a controlled substance for sale and transporting a controlled substance. He has since been moved to the West Valley detention center where he is being held in lieu of $90,000 bail.The case has been forwarded to the District Attorney’s office for review and consideration of additional charges.
