KCSO seizes meth, firearms


On July 2, 2019, Kern Valley deputies stopped 35-year-old Michael Camit on a motorcycle near Webb and Clark Streets in Lake Isabella. Camit briefly tried to evade deputies, but parked the motorcycle at his residence. He tried to flee on foot and threw down the motorcycle helmet he was wearing. Deputies located about 3 ounces of methamphetamine inside the helmet.
