Two men charged after meth investigation

Two people were arrested in association with the seizure of several assault rifles and more than 500 pounds of methamphetamine in California. According to news outlets, the methamphetamine seized by law enforcement had a value of $1.25 million on the street. The people who were arrested, a 55-year-old Apple Valley man and a 21-year-old Ontario man, had been under investigation for two months.

According to jail records, the two men were arrested on Tussing Ranch Ranch Road in the 22500 block of a rural residential Apple Valley section. They were taken into custody on suspicion of methamphetamine possession with intent to sell, possession of methamphetamine while armed and transporting methamphetamine for sale.

The investigation involved police departments from West Covina and Alhambra, as well as the Drug Enforcement Administration and the California Highway Patrol. Six handguns were seized, along with five M16 and M4 rifles and $38,000 in currency. The district attorney's office in San Bernardino County filed charges against both of the men. The 55-year-old was released on bail. The 21-year-old entered not guilty pleas to several felony charges.

Much of the contraband was found at a motor vehicle body repair shop that was searched after the arrest. Law enforcement also found 40 grams of Fentanyl there, according to a statement made by Alhambra police. The arraignment for the 55-year-old was delayed because he had posted bail prior to charges being filed.

In a case where a defendant has been charged with multiple drug crimes, like the defendants here, an attorney might be able to help by looking at the prosecution case for weaknesses and attempting to negotiate a plea bargain. An attorney with experience practicing criminal defense law may be able to develop a strategy to protect the client or minimize criminal penalties.
