Two Oakhurst residents were arrested Thursday afternoon following an investigation into drug and trafficking sales in the Madera County mountains.
The county's Narcotic Enforcement Team (MADNET) said 41-year-old Rocky Rodriguez and his wife, 30-year-old Brenna Rodriguez, are behind bars and face a multitude of felony drug charges. During a search, agents found over $48,000 worth of heroin, marijuana and methamphetamine, as well as a handgun and ammunition.
The two were detained outside Sierra Courthouse near Bass Lake and transported back to their residence on Rock Point Road. As a convicted felon, Rocky Rodriguez faces additional charges of possession of ammunition and a firearm.
Anyone with information about other illegal drug activity in Madera County is asked to call MADNET's 24-hour tip line at (559) 675-7776.
