An investigation by the Turlock Police Department’s Narcotics Enforcement Team led to the seizure of methamphetamine, handguns, cash and the arrest of one suspect.

The investigation centered on two Turlock homes, one in the 200 block of Lewis Street and the other in the 100 block of G Street.

On Tuesday the narcotics’ team served two search warrants at the residences. Between the two homes, investigators found more than two ounces of methamphetamine, two stolen handguns, and around $5,000 in cash, said Turlock Police spokesperson Officer Mayra Lewis.

The approximate street value of the methamphetamine is about $1,000, according to the Turlock Narcotics Enforcement Team.

At the G Street residence the investigators took 42-year-old Roberto Jimenez, who also goes by the alias Robert Guzman, into custody.

Jimenez, a Turlock resident, was arrested on suspicion of possession for sales of methamphetamine and possession of stolen firearms.

The narcotics team had been investigating the possible methamphetamine sales for several months before serving the search warrants, Lewis said.
