Search warrant results in one arrest

(41-year old El Centro woman arrested on narcotics charges)…El Centro Police served a warrant Tuesday on a house in the 1200 block of Heil Avenue.

The El Centro P.D. was assisted by the California Highway Patrol drug detection Canine and members of the Imperial Valley Street Interdiction Team. Inside the home officers found a small amount of marijuana and $8,000 worth of methamphetamine. El Centro Police Commander Jeff Mason says a digital scale was also found in the home, along with surveillance cameras outside the house. Catherine Gonzalez was arrested and booked into County Jail, with bail set at $40,000. Gonzalez owned the home, which Mason says was set up for the sale of narcotics. The Commander said El Centro Police officers received information of suspicious activity at the house about a month ago. They conducted an investigation, which led to the service of the search warrant.
