Police Find Man Taking Desperate Measure to Hide Meth

Warrant arrest turns into fresh drug counts for San Francisco man arrested at Bay Vista section of Hamilton.

A man trying to hide methamphetamines in his anal cavity was arrested Wednesday in a Hamilton apartment on suspicion of various drug charges, said.

Novato officers were assisting San Francisco probation personnel on a felony warrant arrest of Dajuan Zachery Phillips, 21, when they arrived at the apartment on Muroc Lake Drive in the Bay Vista neighborhood, Lt. Keith Heiden said. Phillips was found in a bedroom attempting to deposit a clear baggie into his anus, according to a preliminary police report.

Tests revealed Phillips was in possession of 3.4 grams of methamphetamine, considered multiple doses, Heiden said.

There were six warrants for Phillips’ arrest, with battery on transportation personnel being the most serious and justifying a bail of $250,000, according to the Marin County Jail booking log. Phillips now faces an additional felony charge of possession of a controlled substance.

I think it is important that Susan Adams, Jared Huffman, Norman Soloman etc who are running for congress take a stance on SAFE affordable housing. What are their solutions to obtaining safe housing at Bay Vista and Wyndover? Jared's current solution is to have the NPD take care of it. Is that a solution? Is that fair? I feel we need to make the investors/owners and state of California (who gave them the 55 year tax free exemptions) to be held accountable.

Before there was a Bay Vista and Wyndover, and gangs, and the Patch, and Toni Shroyer, and Jerome, there was Meth in Novato. Not every ill in our town is caused by poor people and people of color. May you all find some love in your hearts.

Kenny's right, but in the old days before affordable housing one could just move to a non ghetto area by paying more for a home, and knowing that the bums could not afford to live nearby. Now, however, we have affordable housing, which means that you can slave your life away to live in a good town only to find that your tax dollars are going to give a free home to a bum who never worked at all. He gets to live nearby and you have to pay for his life.

I live in Bay Vista, and I am not a drug dealer, or a gang member. I work full time, but unfortunately, do not make enough to pay for apartments here. I am actually forced to live here. My dad got transferred here because of military. I chose to stay in Novato after I turned 18, because he chose to retire here. I want to be near my dad. I actually hate Novato. The people in Bay Vista are actually just apart of it. What about the rich stuck up snobs that live outside of Bay Vista? They can be just as bad. Some of the things I see here, I am appalled at. The rich white Marin wives who complain about everything, none of them can drive either. They think they rule the world because they live in "Novato". An nice city with ugly people. You can tell who they are with the comments above.

For example: I was in Petco in Vintage Oaks a few days ago. A Beverly Hills wannabe walked in with her little dog (in a purse of course). Instead of talking in a normal voice, (Let's use our inside voice children!) , she immediately started screaming about how Petco messed up her dog when she took it to be groomed there. I watched these people that worked there do everything they could for her. Offered her free grooming, coupons, everything. I am not sure exactly what she wanted, but ended up not getting it. So, she proceeded to scream that she was bringing her "lawyer" into Petco, and walked out. Oh, and what did she say right before walking out? She turned around and told the sweet gal trying to help her more than anyone a "Fat Bitch". Just as bad as these "criminals" in Bay Vista.
