BARD — The efforts of four law enforcement agencies netted 22 ounces of methamphetamine, two-tenths of an ounce of marijuana and $6,989 in cash from a residence here Saturday.

Imperial County Sheriff's Sgt. Sharon Stogner said officers of the sheriff's Winterhaven substation were helped in executing the search warrant by the Yuma County methamphetamine enforcement team, Quechan tribal police and the California Highway Patrol.

Stogner officers executed the warrant about 5:45 p.m. Saturday after receiving information that David Jaime, 55, of Bard, just outside of Winterhaven, was selling methamphetamine.

Deputies and other law enforcement officers went to Jaime's home in the 1000 block of Perez Road in Bard and found the narcotics and the money.

They also found a small safe containing about 100 pieces of jewelry, three handguns, three rifles and a case full of knifes. Stogner said investigators think those items were traded by customers to Jaime for drugs but they are still investigating.

Jaime was living with his common-law wife and two children. He was arrested for willful cruelty to children and possession of a narcotic for sale.

He was being held in the county jail today with bail set at $35,000.
