YUCAIPA – The report of a prowler in the 1200 block of Tourmaline Avenue in Mentone led to the arrest of a suspected drug dealer Sunday. At around 5:40 a.m. deputies from the Yucaipa station responded to the location and found 27-year-old Kevin Carnes hiding under a vehicle in the backyard of a home. Deputies said that Carnes, who was only wearing jeans and socks appeared to be disoriented and under the influence of a controlled substance.
Carnes explained to deputies that the last thing that he remembered was letting his dog outside, then running from what he thought was a police car. He went on to tell deputies that he was concerned for the well being of his dog and home causing them to perform a security check. When they arrived at his home the door was open and they found evidence of drug sales inside.
A search warrant was served where deputies located cocaine, a digital scale, packaging material, and paraphernalia. Carnes was arrested and booked into jail for possession of drugs for sale.
