Narcotics investigation in Wasco leads to two arrests

On August 28, 2019, at 6:32 p.m., deputies with the Wasco Substation served a search warrant in the 1900-block of Fern Tree Close in the city of Wasco.  The search warrant was the culmination of a weeks-long narcotics investigation. 

Deputies located 24-year-old Angelo Cipeda, his wife, 24-year-old Alma Cipeda. 

During a search of the residence, deputies located 35 individual bindles of cocaine, totaling 21 grams.  Deputies also located two rifles illegal to possess under California law.  One of the rifles was equipped with a bump stock, which allows the weapon to fire multiple rounds with the pull of the trigger. 

Angelo and Alma Cipeda were arrested for Possession of Illegal Weapons, Possession of Cocaine for Sales, Keeping a Residence for Narcotics Sales, Willful Cruelty to a Child, and Conspiracy.  Two young juveniles were taken into protective custody by Child Protective Services.
