BRENTWOOD — State and county drug agents broke up a methamphetamine sales operation run out of a home this morning, according to authorities.
The agents, assisted by Brentwood police, served a search warrant about 7 a.m. at a home in the 100 block of Pasco Drive, according to a news release from the Central Contra Costa County Narcotic Enforcement Team.
Once inside, they detained four adults and four children — including an infant — while they searched the home, where they found three pounds of "high quality" crystal methamphetamine packaged for sale.
Agents said the find was worth more than $80,000.
Authorities arrested 26-year-old Roberto Perez and 18-year-old Alejandro Ornellas on suspicion of possessing methamphetamine for sale.
They were taken to County Jail in Martinez, where they were placed on an immigration hold without bail.
