Man faces drug, immigration charges

A man being sought by federal authorities for re-entering the country illegally was taken into custody by Douglas County deputies on Friday morning.

David Ramon Cobarrubias, 42, who lists an address in Lovelock, was a passenger in a vehicle stopped at around 9:30 a.m. near Waterloo Lane and Main Street in Gardnerville.

A deputy smelled marijuana in the vehicle and arrested the driver for driving under the influence after a field sobriety test.

Cobarrubias was taken into custody after a background check revealed a federal warrant from Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

During a search of the vehicle, deputies found a pipe used for methamphetamine and located a small amount of the drug on Cobarrubias’ person during booking.

Two Carson City residents were taken into Douglas custody accused of multiple drug sales.
