WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah (ABC 4 Utah) – Four people were arrested in a drug bust in West Valley City Wednesday at 2 AM.

After a month long investigation, West Valley City Police Department had determined the house at 4586 West 3500 South was a drug house and decided to shut it down.

The people arrested in this case are three men and one woman: Irvin Gould, 53, Casimiro Vargas-Ochoa, 55, Antonio Villa-Lobos, 18, and Jody Findley, 33.

The male suspects were seen leaving the house in a car driven by Irvin Gould and police followed. They pulled the driver over for a traffic violation and had a K9 check the outside of the car for drugs. When the K9 indicated on the car, police searched and found approximately one pound of crystal meth under the passenger seat.

During the arrest, Gould revealed to police that Villa-Lobos and Vargas-Ochoa had about one and a half pounds of meth and other controlled substances with them when they arrived in Utah within the past several days. Police believe they came from California.

Jody Findley, the owner of the home, was arrested after police got a search warrant and found more drugs at her house. On top of drug paraphernalia, a stolen truck and scooter were also found on her property.
