Drug Dealer Arrested for Third Time in One Year

Ventura County – Some people have such a passion for their work that they’re willing to risk almost anything to engage in it. Even when the potential for serious prison terms loom, it looks like Camarillo resident Joseph Leffie Brown simply can not stop dealing methamphetamine to his clientel.

Evidence of Brown’s devotion to his calling came on September 1st, when he was yet again the primary suspect of an investigation being conducted by the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department Narcotic Unit and the Camarillo Police Department’s Special Enforcement Detail focused upon what Ventura County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Sgt. Jose Rivera described as the activities of “a Camarillo resident who was selling illegal narcotics to residents in Ventura County.

That investigation came to an end during service of a search warrant at Brown’s Camarillo home, during which detectives “seized over 20 grams of suspected methamphetamine” and “a small amount of counterfeit money.”

Brown—who had been arrested on almost identical charges of possession of methamphetamine for sales and possession of counterfeit money on October 12, 2016 and then again on similar charges as well as possession of 32 grams of heroin just a month later on November 9, 2016—was then taken into custody and transported to Ventura County Jail.

This time, he was charged with the usual (sale of a controlled substance, being under the influence of a controlled substance) as well as with forgery, and possession of a smoking device.

Now with three individual cases and a dozen or more charges facing him, Brown remains in custody with his bail set at $500,000.
