Two pounds of meth stashed in a Madera home
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A man is in jail facing drug trafficking charges. Juan Mendez, 31, was arrested Thursday night.
Agents with the Madera County Narcotic Enforcement Team say he was using his rental home in Madera as a stash house. They found two pounds of methamphetamine, worth at least eleven-thousand dollars. They also found a rifle and thousands of dollars in cash.
Based on evidence seized, agents believe Mendez is tied to a drug trafficking organization. Agents contend that methamphetamine manufactured in Mexico was transported across the border, and stored inside the house, and sold on the streets of Madera.
