Police raided the home at the 1600 block of Oakland Avenue East at about 7 a.m. March 29. Police breached the door when nobody answered but later spoke to Ramiro, who showed them 0.66 grams of meth folded in cash inside a pants pocket, according to the court complaint. The complaint stated officers then found three stashes of meth totaling 41.8 grams hidden in the soil of potted plants.
