A Rochester man with an extensive history of driving with a revoked license was arrested Friday after officers allegedly saw him behind the wheel.

Gregory Garrido, 34, was arrested around 3:15 p.m. Friday on the 1200 block of Marion Road after a Rochester police officer saw Garrido driving and knew he had a revoked license, according to Rochester Police Capt. John Sherwin.

Sherwin said the officer ran a check of Garrido’s record and determined he had 10 prior convictions of driving with a revoked license in the past year alone. After the officer handcuffed Garrido, the officer found about an ounce of methamphetamine in Garrido’s pocket, Sherwin said.

He could face a charge of third-degree possession of a controlled substance.

The officer also noticed other items in the backseat and had a drug-sniffing dog do a sweep of the car, Sherwin said. The dog alerted to the presence of drugs in the car and the office eventually found a bag containing about 2 3/4 ounces of meth in it, according to Sherwin.

Police also arrested Jamal Donovan, 24, of Rochester. Donovan may face a charge of second-degree possession of a controlled substance for the bag containing more than two ounces of meth.
