The Irvine Police Department’s Directed Enforcement Team (DET) recently stopped a U-Haul truck for traffic violations.

While talking to the three occupants, officers heard noises in the cargo box area. Concerned that they could have a real “Jack in the Box“, they began investigating.

When officers opened the cargo door, they found a 53-year-old parolee from Santa Ana with a warrant for assault, but his name was not “Jack.”

They arrested the parolee and provided white glove delivery service to Orange County Jail.

Officers packaged up a citation for one of the other passengers who had methamphetamine.

U-Haul Trucks are for moving furniture, not hauling friends with narcotics, and no bail warrants.
