Reedley domestic disturbance leads to arrest and drug seizure

A man was arrested in Reedley Monday after a domestic disturbance call led authorities to discover 60 marijuana plants and other drugs/paraphernalia in a home on the 22200 block of East Lincoln Avenue, the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office said.

Ismael Morales, 41, was arrested around 11:30 a.m. Monday after deputies entered the home in an effort to help a woman who was staying with Morales leave. The woman told deputies she wanted an escort to help gather her things and leave, and when deputies entered the home, they found honey oil, marijuana plants, the entire growing operation and methamphetamine.

Morales was booked into the Fresno County Jail on numerous felony drug charges and outstanding warrants.
