BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The Kern County Sheriff’s Office Major Violators Unit concluded a two-week long methamphetamine sales investigation with the arrest of two Fontana residents in South Bakersfield, officials said.
Narcotics detectives knew that 32-year-old Luis Granados and 20-year-old Marco Granados were attempting to sell large amounts of methamphetamine, officials said.
Both suspects were arrested in the area of Highway 99 and Panama Lane, when investigators located about 31 pounds of methamphetamine in their vehicle, officials said.
Luis Granados was taken into custody without incident and Marco Granados attempted to flee on foot, but was quickly taken into custody, officials said.
Both suspects were arrested and booked into the Kern County Sheriff’s Office Jail.
Southern California law enforcement narcotics detectives conducted follow up investigations at the residence of the suspects; which led to the seizure of about $25,000 in cash, believed to be proceeds of illegal drug transactions as well as additional evidence of drug sales.
They were assisted by the Southern Tri-County HIDTA task force, Kern County Cal-MMET, Kern Narcotics Enforcement Team, and the KCSO Gang Suppression Section-Investigations team.
