SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A man remained jailed Saturday, after he was found with methamphetamine, thousands of dollars in cash and firearms, San Diego sheriff's deputies said.

The sheriff's Alpine Investigation Unit seized $64,000 in cash, several gold and silver collectible coins, six firearms, 440 pills and approximately 3 pounds of methamphetamine from a home on Moccasin Avenue in Clairemont at around 5 p.m. Friday. Scales, packaging and other items consistent with the sale of narcotics were also seized, a Sheriffs Department report said.

Methamphetamine was first found in the home and then additionally in a vehicle parked behind his home after a sheriff's dog detected it. The estimated street value of the methamphetamine was more than $100,000.
