We-Tip report leads to the arrest of a man for possession of narcotics for sales

On Thursday, Oct. 24, at 7:29 p.m., the Multiple Enforcement Team (MET) conducted a narcotics investigation based on a We-Tip from a concerned resident who reported possible drug activity at a residence in the 13600 block of Calimesa Boulevard. MET personnel contacted Angel Layva, 25, at the home. During the investigation, deputies located several bags of suspected assorted drugs hidden inside a “Charmin” package. More drugs were found on Layva’s person. In total, Layva was found in possession of prescription opioids (suboxone and Oxycontin), suspected methamphetamine, suspected heroin, drug paraphernalia and items consistent with drug sales. Layva was arrested for possessing narcotics for sales and was booked into Central Detention Center.

An additional person contacted at the residence, 39-year-old Jason Cox, was arrested for a misdemeanor residential trespassing warrant. He was booked and later released on a citation.
