A crash in Porterville led to the arrest of a Visalia man accused of having more than six pounds of crystal methamphetamine.
Porterville police were called to the area of the Porterville Developmental Center at Blue Heron and Worth Drive where a crash occurred. Alejandro Cabrera was transported to Kaweah Delta Medical Center for his injuries and police began investigating the cause of the crash.
During their search of the vehicle, a small amount of drugs was found in the vehicle’s air vents. A search warrant was later served in the 1600 block of West Castle Avenue, where officers found six pounds of methamphetamine. They also found other evidence of drug sales, police said.
Once released from the hospital, Cabrera will be booked into Tulare County jail on suspicion of drug sales and transportation.
His bail has been set at $500,000.
