Simi Valley authorities charged a 24-year-old Sylmar man with drug possession after interrupting a large delivery of methamphetamine. Police conducted a traffic stop because they identified the man as a significant potential source of the drug in Ventura County.
During the search, police discovered 2 pounds of methamphetamine. Following the man’s arrest, police also served a search warrant on his home. During the second search, they discovered additional quantities of methamphetamine, cocaine and cash. The man posted bail and will return to court in early May.
