Investigators served a search warrant at the 41-year-old’s home on Nov. 9, according to the task force called VC FOCUS, which includes federal and state agencies along with several representatives of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office and local police departments.
Officers found a loaded handgun with fentanyl, methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin as well as counterfeit fentanyl pills and other drugs.
