Mtn. View police arrest 8 for meth

Suspects allegedly tried to sell two pounds of the drug to undercover officers

Law enforcement officials arrested eight people for allegedly selling more than 2 pounds of methamphetamine to undercover police officers last Friday.

The police have yet to release much information about the case, but Sgt. Saul Jaeger, public information officer with the Mountain View Police Department, confirmed that the bust was made on Jan. 10.

Police were aided in the operation by the MVPD's K9 officer, Zeus — a black Labrador. Using his olfactory powers, Zeus sniffed out 2.3 pounds of meth in a vehicle at about 6:30 p.m., somewhere in southern Santa Clara County.

Zeus, one of the department's narcotics dogs, is currently assigned to the Santa Clara County Specialized Enforcement Team.

The suspects, who included one 17-year-old, "were mainly from Fresno and Mountain View," Jaeger said. The juvenile was booked into Juvenile Hall and the adults were booked into San Jose Main Jail.

A spokeswoman with the MVPD said the police are planning to release more information on the case soon.
