The Kern County Sheriff’s Office says it has taken nearly $400,000 worth of meth off the streets and arrested a man in Southwest Bakersfield Wednesday.

Sheriff’s officials said they got a search warrant for a home on Paradise Point Place and found nearly 22 pounds of methamphetamine worth an estimated street value of $392,760 inside.

Deputies also found a bullet proof vest, about $4,300 in cash and two guns — one of which was previously reported stolen, according to the sheriff’s office.

Deputies arrested 31-year-old Leonel Barreto of Bakersfield. He was booked into the Central Receiving Facility on felony drug and weapons charges.

Barreto is being held on $500,000 bail and is due in court Friday afternoon.
