SIMI VALLEY, Calif. - A suspect was arrested in front of his Simi Valley residence last Friday for the possession for sale of methamphetamine.

During the first week of November, the Sheriff's Narcotics Unit received information that Joel Raymond was selling meth to residents of Ventura County.

After a short investigation, detectives were able to gather enough information to obtain a search warrant for Raymond, his vehicle and his residence.

Joel Raymond, 50, lived on the 4400 Block of Apricot Road in Simi Valley.

The Ventura County Sheriff's Office said deputies from the Moorpark Police Department stopped Joel as he left his residence on Friday and searched his home.

During the search, detectives found three digital scales, a small amount of methamphetamine and $6,750 in cash which they believe to be the proceeds from narcotic sales.

The detectives then searched Raymond's vehicle where they found a small safe. Inside the safe, detectives said they found 440 grams of meth, 1.9 grams of heroin, 118 Oxycodone pills, a digital scale and packaging commonly used for the sale of narcotics.

Raymond was arrested for the possession for sale of a controlled substance and was booked at the East Valley Jail where he awaits his criminal proceedings.
