July 27, 2020 – Ventura County
25-year-old Woodland Hills, Ca. resident Nicholas Wynn Young appeared on the radar of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department Narcotics Street Team in December 2018 as a suspected drug dealer.
According to VCSD spokeswoman Det. Danielle Thompson, a brief investigation into his activities at that time promptly lead to his arrest and a guilty plea on charges of selling “a large quantity of MDMA (Molly) and other drugs.” The record indicates that Young “served a short jail sentence,” after which he was released on probation terms.
It appears that Young was undaunted by his probation terms, for in June of 2020 detectives learned that he was up to his old tricks and “was once again selling narcotics” throughout Ventura County.
Detectives obtained a search warrant for Young’s Woodland Hills residence and served it just as he exited the house in the early afternoon of July 24th . He was in physical possession of “a small quantity of MDMA and LSD packaged for sale” at that time and was placed under arrest.
As Young was enroute to Ventura County Jail, the search of his residence lead to the discovery and seizure of “over 5000 LSD doses, 357 LSD pills, ecstasy pills, MDMA pills, liquid LSD, 26 DMT cartridges, and approximately $40,000 believed to be drug sale proceeds.”
Young was booked into Ventura County Jail on multiple narcotic sales and probation violations
and remains in custody on a no-bail hold.
