By Will Conybeare,
A stolen firearm and drugs were recovered at the residence of a wanted felon on Friday in San Bernardino, and she remains on the run from law enforcement.
According to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, 44-year-old Latasha Whiteside stole a firearm, several thousand dollars in cash, and multiple electronic devices from a locked safe in a friend’s house in Big Bear City on May 28.
“The victim also reported Whiteside had stolen several thousand dollars worth of property throughout the previous years,” SBSD said in a statement .
After an investigation led them to Whiteside’s San Bernardino residence, a search warrant was executed on Friday and turned up “items indicative of narcotic sales,” including a scale and one ounce of suspected fentanyl.
