Stockton police and federal agents arrested Antonio Barraza Bazua (from Stockton), 29 years old, for delivering 5 kilograms of cocaine to an informant on Thursday September 6th, 2007. About 2 hours after the delivery, Barraza was in his truck and arrested with another 3 kilograms of cocaine. A search of his apparent residence in the 2100 block of Stormy Creek Court resulted in another seizure of 5 kilograms of cocaine and 13 pounds of crystal methamphetamine. In addition $139,000 was found at this home. The U.S. Attorney's Office said that the wholesale price for one kilogram of cocaine in that area is valued at $16,000 to $17,000. The investigation was a spin-off from a 2005-2006 investigation by the DEA, FBI and included the California Highway Patrol, the Western El Dorado County Narcotics Enforcement Team, and U.S. Immigration and Custom Enforcement.
