Bail was not granted to a Los Angeles man on Thursday, Jan. 29, after Santa Monica police arrested and charged him with possession of narcotics, selling narcotics, and an outstanding warrant.
At an undisclosed time of the day, narcotics officers (or “narcs” as they are known “on the streets”) of the Santa Monica Police Department conducted a follow up investigation that required them to pay a visit to a suspect’s residence in the 3700 block of Motor Avenue in West Los Angeles armed with a search warrant.
The narcotic officers had reason to believe that this property might contain narcotics, given that they had earlier detained two men who they suspected of being in the illicit business of narcotics sales and distribution.
The officers arrived at the property and served the search warrant.
The officers then searched the property and discovered various amounts of methamphetamine (aka Crank, Crystal, Crystal Glass, Crystal Meth, Christina, Tina, Cris, Cristy, Chalk, Chalk Dust, Meth, Ice, Speed, Geep, Getter, Getgo, Go Fast, G, Trash, Garbage, Wash, White Cross, White Crunch, Hanyak, Hironpon, Hiropon, Hot Ice, Super Ice, Batu, Kaksonjae, LA Glass, LA Ice, Ice Cream, Quartz, Chunky Love, Cookies, Cotton Candy, Dun, Gak, Go-Go Juice, Junk, No Doze, Pookie, Rocket Fuel, Scooby Snax), heroin (aka Big H, Brown Sugar, H, Hell Dust, Horse, Junk, Nose Drops, Skag), prescription pills (common illegally used prescription drugs include Amytal, Nembutal, Seconal and Phenobarbital; aka Barbs, Reds, Red Birds, Phennies, Tooies, Yellows, Yellow Jackets), and packaging materials indicative of narcotics sales (various sizes of small plastic re-sealable bags, aluminum foil etc.).
The officers arrested the man and transported him to Santa Monica Jail where he was booked.
