Home-Based Dope Dealer Busted

Ventura County – Alexander Marvin, 19, of Moorpark, is apparently one with an entrepreneurial bent and a serious commitment to the notion of “home-based business.”

In December of 2012, Ventura County Narcotics Detectives received reports that Marvin was selling large volumes of marijuana from his residence.  According to Ventura County Sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Jose Rivera, an investigation ensued which determined that Marvin’s residential sales efforts had attracted a number of high school students throughout the Moorpark area.

On in evening of February 5, 2013, as described by Rivera’s report of the two-month investigation to the media, “narcotics detectives detained Marvin after observing him conduct several illegal drug transactions” within the Moorpark city limits.  A search of his person at that time revealed multiple packages of marijuana clearly intended for sale, along with “cash proceeds suspected to have come from illegal transactions.”

One thing led to another, and a search warrant of Marvin’s home was obtained and served that night.  During the search, cocaine, additional amounts of marijuana, an undisclosed by “large” sum of money, and additional evidence of active involvement in the illegal sales of marijuans was found.

Marvin was arrested on the scene and transported to East Ventura County Jail where he was booked on multiple possession of drugs for sale charges with his bail set at $50,000.
