SHERMAN OAKS—A man was arrested earlier this month for allegedly providing a man with fentanyl which resulted in the individual overdosing on May 1 in the 200 block of Erbes Road in the Thousand Oaks region.
David Smith, 29, of Sherman Oaks was arrested at his home on June 1 for suspicion of sales of a controlled substance.
His accomplice, Adrian Alonso, 25, of North Hills, was arrested on June 9 after police served a search warrant at his motel room where he was staying. Investigators found an unspecified amount of methamphetamine and fentanyl in his motel room.
It was said that Alonso made the sale to the victim, while Smith transported the substance to the victim.
