A man was arrested in Castaic on Friday morning with $100,000 in outstanding warrants.

Deputies arrested a 48-year-old transient around 4 a.m. at a gas station on Castaic Road and Parker Road, according to Sgt. Brian Shreves of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

 “Deputies on an early morning patrol near a gas station found this man in a vehicle with its engine running and black trash bags covering its windows,” Shreves said. “(The suspect) was found to have an outstanding warrant of $50,000 for driving without insurance and with a suspended license, and another $50,000 warrant for possession of drug paraphernalia. It’s really not unusual for us to find individuals with warrants of this amount.”

The other occupant of the car, a 47-year-old Sylmar resident, was arrested on suspicion of  possession of narcotics paraphernalia, according to Shreves.
