Stockpile of stolen electronics seized at Lancaster home
Sheriff’s deputies searching a Lancaster home while investigating the alleged sale of illegal drugs found more than just narcotics early Tuesday. They uncovered a stockpile of stolen electronics, including computers, hard drives, monitors and cellphones, authorities said.
Along with methamphetamine and other illegal drugs, investigators said they discovered evidence of check fraud and identity theft at the property, in the 1100 block of East Kildare Street.
Deputies arrested Roger Leek, 52, Thomas Howell, 44, Alexandra Garcia, 34, and Jonas Andrada, 43, according to a statement from Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials. All four suspects lived at the home, authorities said. They face charges related to narcotics, fraud and stolen property, officials said.
