Police arrest 8 in meth bust

Mountain View residents among suspects

by Nick Veronin

Law enforcement officials arrested eight people for allegedly selling more than 2 pounds of methamphetamine to undercover police officers last Friday.

The police have yet to release much information about the case, but Sgt. Saul Jaeger, public information officer with the Mountain View Police Department, confirmed that the bust was made on Jan. 10.

Police were aided in the operation by the MVPD's K9 officer, Zeus — a black Labrador. Using his olfactory powers, Zeus sniffed out 2.3 pounds of meth in a vehicle at about 6:30 p.m., in southern Santa Clara County.

Zeus, one of the department's narcotics dogs, is currently assigned to the Santa Clara County Specialized Enforcement Team. Police posted a photo fo Zeus posing with his discovery on the department's Facebook page.

The suspects, who included one 17-year-old, "were mainly from Fresno and Mountain View," Jaeger said. The juvenile was booked into Juvenile Hall and the adults were booked into San Jose Main Jail.

A spokeswoman with the police department said the police are planning to release more information on the case soon. Updates to the story will be posted on the Voice website, www.mv-voice.com.
