MONTEREY – What started as an investigation into a possible animal cruelty incident involving a dog, ended in the discovery of a large cache of  illegal drugs.

Monterey County Sheriff’s Deputies initially contacted Jesse Lillibridge about an animal cruelty report. While conducting that investigation, deputies discovered that Lillibridge was in possession of large quantities of various illegal drugs as well as a large sum of money.

Officers confiscated the following items from Lillibridge’s possession –

  • 14 grams of cocaine,;
  • 4.3 grams of marijuana;
  • over 1300 Adderall pills;
  • approximately 100 Ecstasy pills;
  • 22.6 grams of mushrooms;
  • 4 Xanax pills,;
  • 56.2 grams of an edible Marijuana product;
  • over $6,800 dollars.
  • and 116.4 grams of an unknown substance

Investigators believe the unknown substance is likely some sort of illegal synthetic drug, and it has been turned over to the Monterey County Sheriff Crime Lab who will attempt to identify it.

Consequently, law enforcement booked the suspect on multiple drug charges.
