Suspects arrested for manufacturing methamphetamines in Southwest Bakersfield pleaded not guilty in court Tuesday.

Kern County Sheriff’s deputies responded to reports of shots fired in central Bakersfield Sunday morning. A female victim reported she had been assaulted by her 24-year-old boyfriend Jose Juan Solis who had fled the scene.

Deputies went to Solis’s home in Southwest Bakersfield where they took him in to custody and found a methamphetamine lab with processed meth.

Several other people who were inside the home were also detained.

Solis was arrested for possession of a controlled substance for sale, manufacturing a controlled substance, possession of glassware and chemicals used to manufacture a controlled substance, kidnapping, shooting into an inhabited dwelling, and spousal abuse.

A second suspect, 21-year-old Armando Salto, was arrested for possession of a controlled substance for sale, manufacturing a controlled substance, and possession of glassware and chemicals used to manufacture a controlled substance.
