Oildale Fire Leads To Discovery of Drugs, Cash

The fire broke out June 16 in a second-story apartment in the 2400 block of McCray Street.

In the apartment below, firefighters moved some furniture around to make their job easier and safer.

That’s when they discovered nearly $100,000 in cash, about 95 pounds of methamphetamine and about 2.2 pounds of cocaine inside a duffel bag behind a dresser.

Sheriff’s deputies were called in.

Authorities haven’t listed anyone whose name appears on the apartment lease.
