Menlo Park Police arrested a man accused of trafficking drugs Monday in San Jose, California, after hunting him for more than nine months.

John Sellers, 48, was living in East Palo Alto when officials first arrested him for possession of methamphetamines with intent to distribute in September 2012, according to Commander Eric Cowans, who worked on the case for The Menlo Park Police Special Operations Division.

The special ops team was scrutinizing multiple people suspected of trafficking drugs that were being sold in and near Menlo Park in conjunction with the FBI’s Safe Streets Program.

Cowans worked with the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s San Francisco office to identify the Sellers home as a place where methamphetamines were being trafficked. A search warrant for the home was issued, which led to the arrest of Sellers, and the confiscation of methamphetamine and a shotgun.
