12 arrested in drug sweep

first_imgAt another location on Greening Avenue, police found the house highly fortified, Ramos said. Commercial-grade aluminum covered the windows. The house had wrought-iron security doors, and surveillance cameras on three of its four sides. The cameras were constantly monitored in a room inside, Ramos said. When agents demanded entry to the house, a man answered the door but resisted arrest. Police would not say how he resisted, but they had to use force to take him into custody. They would not say what type of force was used, but he was taken to a hospital before going to jail. At that house, they found no drugs and one gun, said Ramos. Six people were arrested for charges including a parole violation, being under the influence of drugs or alcohol, having previous arrest warrants and drug sales. Though no drugs were found at two locations, as a result of previous surveillance police will charge some people they arrested for selling drugs. “They were all involved in the sale of narcotics,” Ramos said. “At this level of narcotics sales, you find a handful of guys who have the larger amounts of narcotics – that could be several ounces to a half-pound or more – that’s street-level type. “Branching off from those, you have a network of runners who deliver for those people, and people who purchase from those suppliers and then sell on their own. It branches off. It’s like a family tree. These people were selling small and large amounts of narcotics.” In the afternoon, police searched two locations and found three-quarters of a pound of meth and a large amount of cash, presumably from drug sales, Ramos said. Four people were arrested on suspicion of selling drugs. By the end of the day, investigators had taken 12 people into custody, and all are suspected of being a part of the same drug ring, Ramos said.

WHITTIER – Federal and local agents busted a drug ring suspected of selling large amounts of illegal drugs and guns. Local narcotics investigators, federal Drug Enforcement Agency officials and agents from the bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives searched five houses Friday, arresting 12 people and recovering about a pound of methamphetamine and two guns during a 16-hour operation. “The investigation began two and a half months ago after we got information from confidential sources that narcotics and guns were being sold,” said Whittier police investigator Kevin Ramos. Those arrested Friday are suspected of buying and selling drugs to each other, he said. Federal agents worked with local investigators to watch the locations for the last three months, and also to go undercover to buy drugs from the suspects.

The other two locations were searched in the afternoon. Officers surrounded the houses, guns drawn. They banged on doors and announced their presence, telling everyone inside the houses to come out. Then, they went in. Communicating with hand signals, they searched rooms, large equipment, garages and vehicles looking for anyone who might be hiding. Everyone they found was taken outside and handcuffed during the searches. After everyone was taken out, detectives went in with drug-sniffing dogs to search for drugs and guns. At a house on Acapulco Drive, Whittier police Detective Jim Yule searched a pickup truck parked in the driveway. Tucked in a side- door compartment, he found about an ounce of meth wrapped in a plastic bag among cigarette packages and papers. last_img read more

Warriors likes Draymond Green’s chance to win DPOY

first_imgOAKLAND – At every waking hour, Draymond Green has professed to think about one thing and one thing only. The Warriors’ forward wants to reclaim the NBA’s Defensive Player of the Year award. In about five months, Green might receive his wish.“He’s always in that conversation,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “There’s only a handful of guys that will be in that conversation every year. Draymond is one of them.”So is Utah center Rudy Gobert, who won last season’s DPOY award at Green’s expense. …last_img
