Arrest on charge of methamphetamine sales

Dustin Smith

Dustin Smith

(Press Release) Agents with the Inyo Narcotics Enforcement Team (INET) concluded a drug investigation in the Bishop area into the sales of methamphetamine.  The investigation resulted inetin one arrest and the seizure of a large amount of drugs.

On the evening of Friday, 04/04/2014, INET Agents along with the assistance of the Inyo County Sheriff’s Department, conducted a search at a residence on Tu Su Lane.  The search was part of an investigation into Dustin Anthony Smith (age 26), a resident of Bishop, for the sale and possession for sale of methamphetamine.  At the residence, INET Agents seized approximately one pound of methamphetamine which resulted in the arrest of Smith.

Through investigation, INET Agents believe Smith was a mid-level dealer who received large amounts of methamphetamine (of a pound or more per shipment) from a wholesale–level supplier.  In turn, Smith would then supply smaller quantities of methamphetamine to street-level dealers in Inyo and Mono Counties for them to sell.

INET Agents began the investigation into Smith when they received information he was involved in criminal drug activity.  Smith was booked at the Inyo County Jail for Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Possession of a Controlled Substance, Possession of a Controlled Substance for Sales, and Felony Child Endangerment.

I pretty much agree with what you say. I might say it different but mean the same thing. The U.S. is a corporatocracy that is bought and paid for by big business. Elected officials are just the winners of the money contest called “Fund Raising”. As for drugs. If some… Read more »

If you knew that we’re all in this together, perhaps you would have more understanding and concern for others instead of disdain.

I like your post, but have to disagree about he aliens and angles comment. First of all, I’m a hard core Athiest, and I do not believe in god. However, I do believe that Angels do exist (just not the kind you read about in scripture.. or maybe they are!).… Read more »

I guess I have a hard time with this notion that somehow law enforcement and the courts are invested in continuing drug abuse because it keeps them employed. I know there is a lot of dishonesty in government but that claim is beyond what any reasonable person can stomach. I… Read more »

Rick, There has to be a system reference, You can’t have any behavior in a system that isn’t reinforced by the system, if it’s not structurally reinforced, it doesn’t matter what your moral codes are, people are going to continue to deviate towards what is working, and corruption and abuse… Read more »

Dear A/P, Just one point: Child Abuse knows no economic boundaries – poverty, wealth, lavish lifestyles to child trafficking. Poverty is not the root of child abuse; human greed and lack of social conscience is.

Yes correct, in a general perspective “poverty” is a lead indicator of child abuse, I wasn’t limiting it to the poor, I was just stating another downfall of our current economic realities, and the perpetuation of..
