Simi Valley police arrested a Burbank man on a host of charges related to drug possession. The man faces six felony counts, including two counts of sale/transportation/offer to sell controlled substance, two counts of possession for sale of a controlled substance and two counts of transportation of a controlled substance.
Following his arrest he was lodged in the Ventura County Main Jail on a $50,000 bond. According to police, they arrested the man following a two-month long investigation into his alleged heroin and methamphetamine sales.
Last week, Simi Valley police officers conducted a raid which turned up 40 grams of heroin, 30 grams of methamphetamine, and materials associated with packaging drugs for sale. In addition, officers seized more than $5,000 in cash.
