Detectives assigned to the Custody Investigative Services Jail Task Force (CIS-JTF) were assigned to investigate a conspiracy to transport illegal narcotics into the Los Angeles County Jail system. After an extensive investigation, detectives from CIS-JTF, along with their elite K-9 partner, “Sherlock,” served a search warrant at the suspect’s residence in the Los Angeles County area, Thursday, March 7, 2019. 
The search of location resulted in (2) felony arrests, the recovery of over two pounds methamphetamine, (2) unregistered semi-automatic hand guns and over $25,000 in U.S. currency.  The approximate jail value of the recovered narcotics was over $120,000 U.S. dollars.
