On 11/1/2013, Narcotic Detectives with the Ventura County Sheriff Office and Simi Valley Police Department concluded a joint narcotics investigation of a Simi Valley resident who was selling methamphetamine to citizens in the east county.   


Detectives detained Sacramento Huerta, age 45, at a shopping center near the intersection of Los Angeles Avenue and Sinaloa Road in Simi Valley. During a search of Huerta's person, detectives located several bindles of methamphetamine that were packaged for sale. Detectives also searched Huerta's residence located on the 900 block of Pacific Avenue in Simi Valley. Detectives located an additional amount of methamphetamine at the residence and evidence Huerta was actively involved in the sales of the drug.  Additionally, Huerta's 13 year old daughter was found to be living with Huerta at this residence. Because of the drugs located inside the residence and being accessible to the minor, a Drug Endangered Children investigation was initiated. Detectives contacted Ventura County Child Protective Services Agency and reported the incident to them for a follow up investigation. The minor was left in the custody of an adult family member.


Huerta was arrested and booked into the Ventura County Sheriff's East County Jail for Possession for Sales of a Controlled Substance and Child Endangerment. Bail was set at $50,000 with a pending court appearance of 11/5/2013, at 1:30pm.
