A narcotics investigation led to the arrest of two men and two women on March 4, 2020, for drug related violations including maintaining a place for selling or using controlled substances.   
Between June 1, 2019 and February 26, 2020, Eddie Posadas and his acquaintances have been arrested by Fillmore patrol deputies for numerous drug related offenses at Posadas’ Fillmore residence.  Detectives conducted an investigation and were able to confirm Posadas was involved in the sales of methamphetamine.  Detectives were able to gather enough evidence to obtain a search warrant from the Superior Court in Ventura County for Posadas’ residence located in the 600 Block of Lemon Way in the city of Fillmore. 
On March 4, 2020, detectives executed the search warrant at Posadas’ residence.  Posadas, Xochitl Cervantes, Maria Negrete, and Mario Correa were all contacted as Posadas’ residence and were arrested for drug related violations.  During the search, a small quantity of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia was found inside Posadas’ residence. 
Based on the investigation, Posadas was booked into the Main Jail for a felony violation of HS 11366 – Maintaining Place for Selling or Using Controlled Substances and misdemeanor violations of HS 11377(a) – Possession of a Controlled Substance, HS 11550(a) – Under the Influence of a Controlled Substance, and HS 11364(a) – Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.  The Ventura County District Attorney’s Office elected to file the previously mentioned charges and Posadas remains in custody with his bail set at $25,000.
The Narcotics Street Team is comprised of Narcotic Detectives from the Ventura County Sheriff’s
Office and the Oxnard Police Department.
