Ventura County Sheriff announces Feb. 9 arrest of Kevin Mulvihill
Officials have announced that recently a man was arrested in a Westwood motel room for having in his possession around 600 grams of opioids, which equates to approximately 15,000 doses.
On February 9, 2023, detectives from the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Street Team and the Culver City Crime Impact Team concluded a lengthy investigation into Kevin Mulvihill, who was identified as a supplier of fentanyl and methamphetamine to residents of Ventura and Los Angeles County.
After obtaining a search warrant from the Ventura County Superior Court, for Mulvihill, his vehicle and the motel room he was renting, Mulvihill was detained in a public parking lot in the 4700 block of Inglewood Blvd., Culver City. Detectives then executed the search warrant at his motel room in the 10800 block of Santa Monica Blvd., Los Angeles.
The investigation resulted in four pounds of methamphetamine, over a pound and a half of fentanyl, 978 counterfeit oxycodone pills (believed to be fentanyl), hundreds of prescription medication pills and US Currency being seized from Mulvihill. The total amount of opioids seized during this arrest equates to approximately 15,000 doses – enough to potentially kill over one million people if ingested as little as .25 milligrams of fentanyl.
This case has been sent to the United States Attorney’s office for filing consideration.
