A 28-year-old convicted felon in violation of his parole was behind bars Thursday on drug charges.

Jeramey Payne of Palm Desert was arrested Wednesday when sheriff’s deputies conducted a search warrant at his residence, in the 74000 block of El Cortez Way, according to Sgt. Paul Heredia.

Deputies found what was believed to be several hundred fentanyl pills, methamphetamine and cocaine, said Heredia. Authorities also items they believed to be indicative of narcotics dealing including $14,000 in cash.

Payne was booked without incident at the John Benoit Detention Center in Indio without bail.

Jail records indicate he will make his initial court appearance on Nov. 12, but did not specify at which Riverside County Superior Court.

Payne’s previous felony history was not immediately available.
