Jaywalking Leads to the Arrest of an Alleged Barstow Drug Dealer

BARSTOW, Calif. – A Barstow man was arrested for multiple outstanding warrants and drug possession for the purpose of sale officials said.

On Wednesday, April 4, 2019, at around 11:10 a.m., a Barstow police officer was patrolling the area, traveling east in the 1100 block of East Main Street when he noticed the male jaywalking. He made contact with the male pedestrian and identified him as 54-year-old James Eric Cheesebrew.


The officer checked his information and learned that Cheesebrew had three outstanding warrants for False Imprisonment, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Shoplifting. Cheesebrew was detained and searched and a yellow bag in his pocket was found to have several baggies filled with methamphetamine.
