Street Dealer Convicted for Sale of a Controlled Substance

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.
