Five people were arrested and more than a half-pound of crystal methamphetamine was seized Tuesday at a house that “was being used for the sales and use of” crystal meth, according to the Jamestown Police Department.
Jamestown police and several other agencies responded to 12 Bishop St. at about 12:45 p.m. Tuesday afternoon in an attempt to find Camille I. Lopez, who was wanted on a federal absconding warrant.
Authorities found Lopez as well as another woman and three men, and after obtaining a search warrant, investigators located more than a half-pound of crystal meth, about $1,500 in cash and drug paraphernalia, including scales and packaging.
Arrested were the following residents of 12 Bishop:
