News

Three people were arrested on the suspicion of drug trafficking and sales on Friday after Fresno Police with the help of the DEA seized 67 pounds of methamphetamine.

Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer along side DEA Chris Coleman said his officers confiscated nearly 70 pounds of crystal meth. 

On Thursday night, Fresno police conducted a traffic stop on a Toyota Corolla on Ventura and F Streets, with the help of a drug dog, police located 11 pounds of methamphetamine hidden under a wheel well. 

The driver, Francisco Navarro, 23, was arrested on the suspicion of drug sales and trafficking. 

Dyer said that traffic stop led detectives to a home located in Dinuba. 

“We do know is that he more than likely picked up those drugs from the address in Dinuba and was transporting to a particular location,” Dyer said.

 Fresno Police and DEA agents raided six trailers on the 9000 block of Avenue 392 and located 56 pounds of crystal meth, cocaine, and 1,200 rounds of ammunition. 

Dyer believe the drugs were smuggled from Mexico to the U.S. border. 

“No question this methamphetamine came across the border from Mexico through a port of entry. No doubt hidden through a vehicle somehow undetected,” Dyer said.
