The Madera Narcotics Enforcement Team (MADNET) served a search warrant in the 20000 block of Avenue 19 in Madera County on Jan. 31.
During the service of the warrant, MADNET Detectives located several pounds of methamphetamine, cocaine, heroin, and marijuana. Evidence of a methamphetamine conversion lab was discovered, and a loaded firearm was recovered from the residence.
Due to the dangerous nature of the conversion lab, the California Department of Justice was called to assist with clean up efforts to render the location safe.
Three suspects were identified and arrested as a result of this investigation. The subjects were booked in at the Madera County Department of Corrections on charges that include manufacturing a controlled substance, possession of methamphetamine for sale, and possession of heroin and cocaine for sale.
The investigation remains ongoing. The Madera Narcotics Enforcement Team provides an anonymous tip line as an alternative means by which individuals may relay valuable information regarding drug related criminal activity.
