On Tuesday, January 28th at approximately 7 a.m., Palmdale Station Detectives served a search warrant at an apartment on the 4800 block of West Avenue L-14, in the Lancaster area, resulting in two arrests.
The case began to unfold for detectives approximately two weeks ago when they began to investigate a residential burglary which occurred in Palmdale. Palmdale Detectives began to follow up, using departmental resources and training, and developed information which resulted in a search warrant.
While detectives were searching the Lancaster residence they found several sandwich bags containing rock cocaine in the couple’s bedroom. The total amount of cocaine found was approximately 2 ounces. In addition to the cocaine, a large amount of cash was found in the male suspect’s pocket.
In the home was the couple’s infant child, who was placed with the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), due to the large amount of drugs found in the home.
The two suspects arrested at the location were 22 year-old Lancaster resident Ebonie Fong and 22 year-old Lancaster resident Cornell Glass.
Both suspects were transported and booked at the Palmdale Sheriff’s Station. Fong and Glass were both booked on charges of burglary with a bail amount of $80,000, receiving stolen property with a bail amount of $20,000, child endangerment with a bail amount of $100,000 and possession of cocaine base for sales with a bail amount $100,000. Both suspects are scheduled to be arraigned on Thursday, January 30th, at the Antelope Valley Courthouse.
The ongoing investigation is being handled by the Palmdale Detective Bureau.
