San Bernardino, CA – Bail is $1 million for a man suspected methamphetamine sales.
Robert Allen Shuey, 22, was arraigned on possession of controlled substance for sale allegations before Judge Kenneth R. Barr on Monday, January 14. Shuey was arrested in the 300 bloc k of Blue Jay Canyon Road in Blue Jay on Thursday, January 10, at 6:34 p.m. He is charged with the felony drug sales count, for a felon in possession of a firearm and for being a prohibited person in possession of ammunition.
Shuey — who remains in custody at the Central Detention Center in San Bernardino — was arraigned by 2-way electronic audio and entered a plea of not guilty to all charges, according to court documents.
Deputies made contact with Shuey in Blue Jay about 10:26 a.m. relating to possible parole violations.
“Our deputies found a locked floor safe during their contact with Shuey,” Captain Rick Ells told ROTWNEWS. “They instructed Shuey to open the safe but he claimed tio have forgotten the combination. A locksmith was called and was prepared to drill into the safe to gain access, but Shuey finally complied with the request and opened the safe.”
Captain Ells noted the deputies recovered suspected methamphetamine, scales consistent with drug sales, and a revolver.
NEXT COURT APPEARANCE
Judge Barr — who appointed the Public Defender to represent Shuey — set a pre-preliminary hearing for 8:30 a.m. in Department S-22 on Wednesday, January 23.
Court documents show there is a no bail hold out of Clark County, Nevada, for Shuey. The documents do not show why Shuey is a wanted fugitive by Nevada authorities.
