On March 15th, 2019 around 5pm, Fullerton Police Department detectives assisted with the service of a Federal Arrest Warrant on a 38-year-old male for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.
The warrant was the result of a narcotics investigation involving a methamphetamine distribution ring sourcing illegal controlled substances in the Northeast, Southeast and the Midwest.
The male adult was arrested and a subsequent federal search warrant was served at his residence in the 800 block on N. Woods Ave. This led to the discovery of a THC extraction lab and a large quantity of methamphetamine.
The Orange County CLEAN Lab Team responded and processed the scene and removed all hazardous materials.
The suspect is currently in custody and will ultimately be charged with HS 11379.6(a) – Manufacturing Drugs.
