Parole officers initiated a home visit Monday evening to the residence of Mario Fernandez, 37. Bayley Bird, 20, also was at the residence and had a warrant out for her arrest, so the parole officers called in NPD, said Lt. Joe Ramirez.
Officers searched the premises and discovered 148 grams of methamphetamine, cash, stolen credit cards and a stolen gun, Ramirez said.
