Authorities seized more than 10 pounds of marijuana, several grams of methamphetamine and cocaine after arresting a man suspected of selling drugs out of his Santa Paula business.

The Ventura County Sheriff's Department's narcotics unit arrested Duraid Durra, 33, as he was leaving his Ventura home Dec. 10. A search of his vehicle revealed marijuana packaged for sale that detectives believed was headed to his business, Harvard Smoke Shop.

At the shop, in the 100 block of Harvard Boulevard, police also found packages of what they suspect are spice and bath salts on display for sale, the Sheriff's Department said in a statement.

In addition to marijuana, authorities also found methamphetamine, cocaine and cash at his home in the 10000 block of Jamestown Circle. Three other residents, Cleland Weber, 45, Hugh Setterfield, 55, and David Reed, 41, also were arrested on various drug-related charges and booked at county jail.
