BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — The Kern County Sheriff’s Department said six people were arrested Saturday and a juvenile was taken into protective custody following a search of a home.

Deputies said that on Saturday, the Kern County California Multi-jurisdictional Methamphetamine Enforcement Team concluded an extensive narcotic investigation.

Cal-MMET officers said they served a search warrant in the 10000 block of Sunset Canyon Road in Bakersfield.

When officers entered the home, they said a man ran from the home and after a short pursuit through the neighborhood, 23-year-old Nicholas Sean Tijerina was arrested by a Cal-MMET deputy.
