PALMDALE – Several plastic baggies full of methamphetamine, a large amount of cash and other items related to the sales of narcotics were seized from a Palmdale home Thursday morning, authorities said.
The bust happened at a home in the 37400 Block of Laramie Street in Palmdale, according to Lancaster Station Community Relations deputy Michael Rust.
The home’s occupant, 35-year-old Jose Lopez, was taken into custody and faces narcotics-related charges, Rust said.
Deputies from Lancaster Sheriff’s Station’s “LANCAP” team served a search warrant at the Laramie Street home around 9 a.m. and found the drugs, cash and narcotics paraphernalia inside the home, Rust said.
The methamphetamine has an estimated street value of $8,000.
Lopez was arrested around 11:05 a.m. Thursday (Jan. 10) and booked at the Lancaster Station on $30,000 bail. He is due in court on Monday to face charges.
