Man signs up for rehab; brings drugs



OXNARD, Calif. - A man was arrested on suspicion of drug possession and sales after he left a fanny pack containing drugs at a drug rehabilitation center where he had just signed up for treatment, police said.

According to police, Steven Holbrook, 42, had just signed up for substance rehabilitation Tuesday and left the center, leaving behind a fanny-pack containing methamphetamines.
