Police arrested a 29-year-old Napa man on Friday on suspicion of selling methamphetamine, heroin and other drugs nationwide by mail, police said.

It’s the third time he’s been arrested on drug-related charges, police said.

The Napa Special Investigations Bureau arrested Ernest Davis at his residence in the 3000 block of Silverado Trail after searching his home and finding methamphetamine, heroin, Xanax pills, and synthetic heroin for sale, according to police.

Police said that although Davis has reportedly been unemployed, they seized $8,000 in cash from his home.

Authorities were conducting a post-release community supervision visit for convicted criminals who have recently been released from prison, police said.

Police first arrested Davis in Dec. 2012 while he was sitting in his car in the parking lot of a Napa restaurant.

Police found a loaded and stolen handgun, methamphetamine, MDMA (which is also known as Ecstasy), and prescription pills for sale.

After the 2012 arrest, police said they executed a search warrant at Davis’s home and found evidence that he was selling and shipping meth and other drugs via mail. Davis later pleaded guilty to drug and weapons charges and was sentenced to custody and probation, police said.

Police again arrested Davis is Aug. 2013 on charges of possessing methamphetamine for sale and police said officers found evidence he was shipping the drugs by mail.

Davis again pleaded guilty and was subsequently sentenced to state prison, police said. He had been released from prison under the guidelines of Assembly Bill 109.

After Friday’s search and arrest, police booked Davis into the Napa County Department of Corrections on suspicion of possessing controlled substances for sale and violating the terms and conditions of his supervised release from state prison.
