VENTURA COUNTY, Calif. - Ventura County Sheriff's Narcotics detectives arrested two residents last week for their involvement in drug trafficking activities.
Earlier, detectives began investigating a 25-year-old Inglewood man and discovered he was responsible for transporting and distributing bulk quantities of methamphetamine and heroin to drug dealers and residents throughout the county.
On Friday, April 30, detectives collected information that indicated the Inglewood man would be delivering a bulk quantity of meth and heroin that day.
Detectives spotted the man's vehicle around 1:20 p.m. and pulled him over on the 2700 block of Teller Road in Thousand Oaks. They said they found a 21-year-old Oxnard woman in the passenger seat. Detectives believe the woman is also involved in trafficking narcotics.
The detectives served a search warrant for the man's person and vehicle during the traffic stop and discovered the bulk amount of meth and heroin that they suspected.
A second detective team then served a search warrant at the man's home on the 700 block of Osage Street in Inglewood and discovered additional meth, suspected fentanyl pills, money, cocaine and heroin.
In all, detectives said they seized about four pounds of meth, two pounds of heroin, 350 suspected fentanyl pills, one ounce of cocaine and several thousand dollars of suspected drug proceeds.
Based on these findings and the investigation, deputies arrested both the Inglewood man and Oxnard woman and booked them at the Pre-Trial Detention Facility in Ventura for various narcotics charges. Their bails were set at $50,000 each and both are awaiting court proceedings.
