Last Friday night, at approximately 11 p.m., a Westminster police department officer attempted to stop a vehicle for California Vehicle Code (CVC) violations at Westminster Blvd/Beach Blvd.

The driver, 60-year-old Tim Hughes of Downey, CA, failed to pull over and a pursuit ensued.

During the pursuit, Hughes began throwing suspected narcotics from the vehicle window. Officers recovered over 6 oz of meth and 7 oz of fentanyl from the pursuit route. Additionally, 300 fentanyl pills, 1 oz of heroin, and approximately $6,000 in cash were located inside the suspect vehicle.



Hughes was taken into custody without further incident for possession of narcotics for sales, felony evading, and destruction of evidence.

Hughes got to spend the holidays at the O.C. Jail and presumably dined on balogna sandwiches on Christmas Day.

Great job by the Westminster Police Department’s night shift officers working this holiday weekend to keep Westminster safe!
