Ventura County – Ventura County Sheriff’s Narcotics Division deputies, working in close concert with members of the Santa Paula Police Department, and officers of the Oxnard Police Department lead a team described by VCSD spokesman Sgt. J. Hendren as “working cooperatively in the investigation of narcotics offenses occurring in the western portion of Ventura County” with a record of arrests pointing to the successful endeavors of the law enforcement collective known as The West County Street Team.
Further evidence of the productive results of their efforts to interdict illicit manufacture and distribution of controlled substances within their jurisdiction came in the early afternoon of December 5th. Acting on information received by multiple confidential informants that Jeremiah Snaidman, a 41-year old Camarillo resident, was engaged in the active process of “manufacturing concentrated cannabis and selling concentrated cannabis from his residence,” The West County Street Team obtained and served a search warrant upon Snaidman and his domicile.
When Snaidman was departing his residence just after noon, deputies summarily detained him and then proceeded to conduct a warrant search of the home. The search did not disappoint, as deputies located “two firearms, concentrated cannabis manufacturing device, approximately 3.5 ounces of concentrated cannabis and approximately 4.5 pounds of marijuana.” According to Hendren, detectives noted that Snaidman had made significant structural modifications to the house in furtherance of his illegal processing operation; shortly after the search, the residence was inspected by local authority Building and Safety staff and it was condemned as uninhabitable.
Failing to receive The Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval, Snaidman was transported to Ventura County Jail where he was booked on charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm, manufacturing a controlled substance, possession of marijuana for sale, and possession of concentrated cannabis.
