Authorities search for suspected Fort Bragg meth dealer

Fort Bragg police were searching for a 34-year-old man suspected of selling methamphetamine.

Officers found about a quarter-pound of meth as well as pipes, packaging and other items at the North Harrison Street home of Juba Lee Kenyon Jr., Lt. John Naulty said.

Police and probation officers searched the home between East Alder Street and East Redwood Avenue mid-afternoon Monday during an investigation of Kenyon, who is on probation for a theft conviction, Naulty said.

Kenyon wasn't home, but the officers found a room outfitted like a drugstore with supplies and a significant amount of methamphetamine in four chunks, each about 3 inches long and a half-inch thick, Naulty said.

Police suspect Kenyon and his roommate Naomi Elysia Mendez, 32, were selling drugs, Naulty said.

Mendez was arrested on suspicion of possessing marijuana and methamphetamine for sale and other drug violations, jail records show.

Kenyon was described as a white man, 5-foot-8 and about 160 pounds with short wavy blond hair and blue eyes.

Anyone with information about the case can call the Fort Bragg Police Department at 964-0200.
