Posted on Saturday, December 28, 2013 12:09am

Authorities say a several month long investigation has led to the arrest of a major drug dealer working in eastern Ventura County, and western Los Angeles County.

The Ventura County Interagency Pharmaceutical Crimes Unity arrested Aaron Lieberman of Simi Valley, and seized methylone, a drug sold as both ecstacy, and bath salts.  Investigators say the drugs they confiscated have a street value of more than $400,000.

The 23 year old man was arrested on multiple drug related charges.  Detectives say they also arrested his girlfriend, 22 year old Samantha Brand, for possession for sale of methylone.

They say they also recovered paraphernalia used for the production of drugs, along with evidence that the couple imported chemcials from China to make the illegal drugs.
