A 60-year-old man apparently tossed a large quantity of methamphetamine and fentanyl from a vehicle during a police pursuit Friday night, Dec. 23, in Westminster — creating what officials described as a “snowstorm.”

Officers attempted to pull over a vehicle near Westminster Boulevard and Beach Boulevard, but the driver refused to stop, leading to a short chase, Westminster police said in a statement.

During the chase, police say, the driver threw the drugs from the window. One of the officers involved the pursuit said afterwards that “it looked like a snowstorm, according to a Saturday morning press release.

A short time later, the driver, who police identified as Tim Hughes of Downey, stopped the car and was arrested on suspected possession of narcotics for sale, felony evading and destruction of evidence, according to the statement.

Officers searched the pursuit route and recovered more than six ounces of methamphetamine and seven ounces of fentanyl. A potentially lethal dose of fentanyl constitutes only 0.00007 of an ounce.

An additional 300 fentanyl pills, an ounce of heroin and about $6,000 in cash were located inside the vehicle, police said.
