MONET arrests Mammoth Residents on Drug Charges

Seven Mammoth Lakes residents have been arrested in relation to alleged sales of oxycontin and heroin. Mono Sheriff officials report that Mono Narcotic Agents served five search warrants that led to the arrests. During the operation, MONET recovered 27 oxycontin/oxycodone pills, 6 grams of tar heroin, over 100 used hypodermic needles, and $625 in currency, heroinofficials say.

20-year-old Richard Ivan was arrested for alleged sales of oxycontin while out on bail on a previous MONET drug sales case.

Officers arrested 23-year-old Todd Talamantes and Brandon Daunis for alleged possession for sale and transportation of tar heroin and oxycontin, and being under the influence of a controlled substance.

26-year-old Marci Danner, was arrested for alleged possession for sale and transportation of tar heroin.

20-year-old Amanda Ross, was arrested for allegedly maintaining a residence for the purpose of selling and/or using narcotics and being under the influence of a controlled substance.

21-year-old Misha Endo, was arrested for allegedly being under the influence of a controlled substance, maintaining a residence for the purpose of selling and/or using narcotics, and destruction of evidence.

19-year-old Tyler Roles, was arrested for maintaining a residence for the purpose of selling and/or using narcotics.

Mono Sheriff officials say that methamphetamine, marijuana, and other drugs have always been a problem for agents but recently MONET has dealt with what they call an epidemic of people both young and old, abusing oxycontin. In this case the oxycontin was said to be found with heroin. Agents say that heroin is the illegal equivalent alternative to oxycontin and that addicted users turn to the less expensive heroin because oxycontin is more expensive and requires a prescription.
