Federal officials announced Friday that a West Covina man was charged in federal court with possession with the intent to distribute methamphetamine.
Authorities found over one-half kilogram of methamphetamine in his residence and a lot of weapons.
Edwin Francisco Reyes, 44, was charged with the drug trafficking offense in a criminal complaint filed Wednesday in federal court.
According to the affidavit in support of the complaint, Reyes was arrested by the Chino Police Department on March 2 after they executed a search warrant at the home he shared with his wife and four children.
During the search, officers with the Chino Police Department seized 532 grams – or nearly 19 ounces – of methamphetamine.
