Police said back on December 16, 2015, police were called out to 8th Street and Grandview Avenue in reference to a male subject who was unconscious behind the wheel of his vehicle.

Salgado was taken to the hospital where officers found a bag of synthetic marijuana in his pocket.

According to the report, a four year old girl and a five year old boy were found inside the vehicle with an odor of an unknown burnt substance in the vehicle.
