Police: Internet cafe employees busted for selling meth

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Law enforcement is busy dealing with Internet cafes, but not due to the alleged gambling that goes on inside.

At about 4 a.m., Nov. 23, police officers learned of narcotics activity in the area of iNet, on Hughes and White lanes.

When officers arrived, the cafe was open and the officers witnessed a drug deal between a person and a security guard.

Munoz and iNet employee Michael Lee tried to hide methamphetamine, but it was later found by police.

Diaz ran out of the back of the business and tried discarding drug paraphernalia.

Another employee tried to flee iNet with a large amount of money in an envelope.
