Two men were jailed Thursday night, following an undercover
investigation by Long Beach police that netted 12 pounds of drugs, $118,000 in
cash and nine guns.
Police were targeting heroin dealers in the investigation that led them
to a house in the 7500 block of Jaboneria Road in Bell Gardens. A search there
uncovered 3 1/2 pounds of heroin and 2 1/2 pounds of crystal methamphetamine
and police arrested 21-year-old Oscar Salmoran.
Search warrants were later served at three other locations Wednesday,
leading to the arrest of Domingo Payan, 56, at a residence in the 5300 block of
Aldama Street in Highland Park. Officers discovered six pounds of heroin and
nearly $50,000 in cash there.
The guns and more cash were found in two houses in the 2700 block of
Montecito Street, also in Los Angeles.
Salmoran is being held without bail and Payan's bail is set at $100,000.
