SAN DIEGO — Police arrested 16 people and seized methamphetamine and other drugs from a home in the Cherokee Point area of City Heights overnight.

Police raided the home in the 3300 block of Cherokee Avenue just before 9 p.m. Wednesday. Officers were tipped off to alleged drug activity at the house after police arrested 10 people from possessing methamphetamine at another location.

Investigators said they found more drugs and drug paraphernalia at the house, where they arrested six more people. There were also several trailers on the property.

FBI arrests Cal State San Marcos student body candidate


SAN MARCOS, Calif. – A California State University San Marcos student was arrested and will face federal charges for allegedly rigging a student body election.

Matthew Weaver, a junior at CSUSM, was arrested Thursday and charged with fraud, access device fraud and unauthorized access to a computer, according to FBI special agent Foxworth.

Man accused of threatening North County school arrested


Laurel Elementary School

OCEANSIDE, Calif. — A 61-year-old North County man was arrested Friday on suspicion of falsely reporting an impending shooting at an elementary school near his home six days after the second-deadliest campus gun rampage in U.S. history.

Alex Paul Rodriguez of Oceanside was taken into custody this morning at the College Boulevard residence he shares with his wife, according to police.

Rodriguez allegedly left a message on a voice-mail system at Laurel Elementary School at 4:15 a.m. Thursday, claiming that there would be a shooting there about seven hours later.

“The caller ended the message with what is being described as maniacal laughter,” Lt. Leonard Mata said.

Due to the threat, teachers kept pupils inside locked classrooms for the day, and police officers intensively patrolled the western Oceanside campus and surrounding neighborhood.

Investigators were able to trace the menacing call to a cell phone owned by Rodriguez, according to Mata.
