Several people were arrested on various narcotics charges, including operating an alleged drug house, in Rancho Cucamonga on June 5, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.
Deputies from the Rancho Cucamonga Police Department served a search warrant at a residence on the 8200 block of 9th Street. Deputies recovered Xanax pills, methamphetamine, a scale with narcotic residue, more than 30 used hypodermic needles containing methamphetamine residue, and more than 10 glass pipes used to ingest methamphetamine.
In total, 15 people were living at the residence. Two of those people were found to have outstanding warrants, six were arrested for felony narcotics crimes, and one was arrested and later cite released for a misdemeanor narcotics offense. The nine arrestees were booked at the West Valley Detention Center.
One of the 15 occupants considered herself the “head of the household” and charged rent from the occupants. But the “head of the household” has no legal standing to the residence and was using it to further narcotics sales in Rancho Cucamonga, the Sheriff's Department said.
Code enforcement officials determined the residence was unsafe for living and condemned the dwelling.
