Methamphetamine arrest
A San Bernardino County parolee was arrested Thursday on suspicion of selling methamphetamine after officers discovered the drug along with a scale, money and plastic bags inside his bedroom, authorities said.

Andrew Dean Lofton, 46, was taken into custody after a deputy and parole agent had to force their way into his bedroom in his Twin Peaks home, the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department said.

Lofton had refused to open the bedroom door after the officers responded to a report of drug sales at the property, authorities said. About a one-quarter of an ounce of methamphetamine was recovered.

Lofton was being held at the Central Detention Center in Rialto.
