A 34-year-old felon was arrested Monday for alleged drug trafficking and being in possession of firearms, fentanyl and a large amount of methamphetamine in Blythe.

Ernest Leroy Davis was arrested Monday morning on a federal weapons and drug-trafficking warrant, according to the Blythe Police Department. He also had a county warrant for possession of controlled substances while armed and various traffic warrants.

Police said members of the department’s Detective Bureau, Police Patrol and Dispatch, along with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation Critical Incident Team and the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department served a search warrant at a residence in the 300 block of South Springs Street around 7 a.m.

“Also scales and packaging that indicates drug trafficking was currently taking place at the location were also seized,” police said.

Davis was booked into Blythe Jail, where he was being held on $1 million bail.
