Kern County deputies have arrested a man on narcotics charges after receiving a bizarre 9-1-1 call.

Around 11 PM on February 8, Wasco City substation deputies responded to the 1300  block of E. Street after someone reportedly called dispatch, yelled the address, and hung up.

There they found several subjects standing in the driveway and the homeowner, 48-year-old Noe Esquivel, walking away and throwing an unknown object over the neighbor’s fence. The bag was later retrieved and turned out to contain about 80 grams of suspected meth.

Esquivel and four others — three adults and one juvenile — were detained at the scene as deputies obtained a search warrant for the home.

The resultant search turned up packaging and other indicators of narcotics sales, as well as several live rounds of .22 caliber ammunition.

Esquivel was taken into custody on suspicion of possession of narcotics with intent to sell, destroying or concealing evidence, possession of ammunition by a restricted person, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The remaining individuals were released at the scene.
