Narcotics detectives served a warrant at the home of an elderly couple in the 1500 block of West Kentucky Street at about 7:25 p.m., according to the Fairfield Police Department. The couple's son, 43-year-old Clemente Ledesma who lived in converted rooms at the back of the home, was the focus of the search warrant.

Ledesma was allegedly involved in selling drugs at his parents' house, according to detectives who recovered evidence during a search of his room, police said. Officers found cocaine, methamphetamine, two digital scales, cutting agent, pipes and cell phone messages "indicating narcotics sales," according to police.

Police did not specify a quantity or value of the drugs they reported finding.

On bail for prior drug offenses, Clemente was rearrested and booked at the Solano County jail for possession of a controlled substance for sale, possession of cocaine, possession of paraphernalia and for committing a felony while out on bail.
