Andy Chavez, 41, of Fontana, was convicted by DDA Kyung Kim of one count of Possession for Sale of a Controlled Substance.
According to DDA Kim,
Chavez was a low level street dealer in a high crime area that Fontana Police
Department was conducting extra patrols.
“Fontana Police Department
made the effort to clean up that area so it was natural we should back them up
in their efforts,” said Kim. “Given the number of violent crimes that occur with
both the sales and use of drugs, getting Mr. Chavez off the streets was one step
of many in helping create a safe and clean neighborhood.”
Chavez faces 3
years in County Prison when sentenced Sept. 28.
