Drugs Seized in RV With 2 Arrests in Los Angeles

Los Angeles, CA; Two individuals were apprehended by Los Angeles police officers for allegedly engaging in illicit drug sales from a recreational vehicle situated near a homeless encampment in San Pedro.

Recently, officers from the Los Angeles Police Department conducted a search warrant in Hollywood. This operation eventually led them to an RV parked on the 900 block of South Beacon Avenue, an area that is notorious for drug-related crimes according to the police.

According to the police, the RV did not serve as a residence for any homeless individuals. Instead, the two men utilized it exclusively to participate in narcotics sales and consumption.

Authorities obtained a search warrant for the vehicle, resulting in the discovery of 439 grams of powder cocaine, 29 grams of cocaine base, an unregistered handgun, and a substantial amount of cash totaling $147,987.

According to the United States Department of Justice, a cocaine base is cocaine hydrochloride that has been transformed into a smokeable chemical base state.
