A 23-year-old Kennewick man is behind bars after police arrested him for Possession of a Stolen Firearm and Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Distribute.

Oscar Manzo-Garcia was taken into custody Saturday morning at Grigg's in Pasco after a report of a disturbance. Upon arrival, Pasco Police detained Manzo-Garcia after he was found to have a felony warrant out of Benton County.

After a search, police discovered blue pills in Manzo-Garcia's possession.  The pills are consistent with the appearance of recent "Mexi" fentanyl pills found in the Tri-Cities area.  Manzo-Garcia was also found to have a pistol magazine and set of car keys. Officers soon located the vehicle and had it towed for a search warrant.

A search of the vehicle turned up more blue "Mexi" fentanyl pills and the pistol corresponding to the magazine that was found on Manzo-Garcia.
