Deputies with the Fallbrook Sheriff's Substation Crime Suppression Team developed information about about a house that was possibly involved in selling drugs. Through the Crime Suppression Team's investigation, enough evidence for a search warrant was obtained.

One handgun lower receiver
More than 1,300 rounds of ammunition
More than five pounds of marijuana, heroin, methamphetamines and fentanyl
