PERRIS (CBSLA.com) — Deputies have arrested eight people after serving a narcotics-related warrant at a home in the city of Perris.

Sheriff’s deputies said in a written statement that members of a drug task force served the warrant at the residence in the 1700 block of Opal Drive on Saturday afternoon around 3:05 p.m.

During their search, deputies allegedly recovered several pounds of liquid and crystal methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and a loaded firearm.

“In addition, multiple subjects at the residence were on felony probation and found to be under the influence of a controlled substance,” the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement.

The accused were identified as: 30-year-old Ulices Mendoza, 26-year-old Lena Amparan, 43-year-old Richard Moore, 24-year-old Carlos Martin, 36-year-old Raul Lopez, 33-year-old Alberto Alvarez, 34-year-old Jaime Mojica, and 21-year-old Brooke Coates.

Each of the eight were booked on suspicion of maintaining a drug house, possession of methamphetamine for sale, conspiracy and other charges.

Anyone with more information about this case was asked to call Deputy Bolle at the Perris Police Department by calling (951) 210-1000.
