A Los Angeles man faces drug possession charges following a non-fatal overdose in Ventura County. According to investigators, a Ventura County resident overdosed on heroin last fall. The overdose did not result in the resident’s death, but did require medical intervention to prevent death.
Investigators determined that a Los Angeles resident was the source of the heroin. The man sold large quantities of heroin and methamphetamine in Los Angeles County and Ventura County. Detectives observed the man for more than two months before arresting him.
After obtaining a search warrant for the man, his house and his car, authorities located him in Van Nuys. Following the search, investigators recovered 27 pounds of methamphetamine, a pound of heroin, more than 100 Vicodin pills and Ecstasy. In addition, they found four handguns, a bulletproof vest and a large amount of cash. He faces charges of 6 drug-related felonies, two weapons related felonies, and 54 special allegations. He remains jailed on a $500,000 bond and returns to court on January 31 for matters related to his case.
