A Loomis man arrested on four felony charges related to drug possession and evading police had his early status conference continued to December after the judge granted his attorney’s continuance request due to an offer and more evidence received from the prosecution.

Nicholaus Knight’s attorney, Jonathan Richter of the Placer County Public Defender’s office, said another case against Knight is “probably going to be dismissed via the Harvey waiver, part of the resolution of the new case.”

Richter said his client denies all allegations. Approached by the Journal, Richter said he does not comment on his cases.

Knight’s next court date is set for 8:30 a.m. on Dec. 18 in Dept. 13 at the Placer County Jail. He continues to be released on bail bond.

The 31-year-old Knight was arrested on Oct. 26 by the Auburn Police Department and Placer County Sheriff’s Office.

While police pursued Knight on his motorcycle, he allegedly tossed a small package that was later recovered and it contained about an ounce of crystal methamphetamine worth about $10,000, Auburn police said. He also possessed a scale, $1,506 cash, pain killers and syringes, police said.
