In December of 2021, Amanda Listoe (31-year-old resident of Ontario) was arrested in the City of Eastvale for possession fentanyl pills for sales. After her release from custody, deputies assigned to the Eastvale Special Enforcement Team (SET) developed information that Listoe continued to sell fentanyl and other illegal narcotics throughout the cities of Eastvale, Jurupa Valley, Norco, Riverside and Corona. Gustavo Chavez (32-year-old resident of Ontario) was identified as a co-conspirator engaged in the sales of fentanyl with Listoe. On Tuesday, March 1, 2022, Eastvale SET deputies contacted Listoe and Chavez in the city of Norco. A subsequent search of their person and vehicle revealed a significant amount of fentanyl pills, methamphetamine and items indicative of the sales of controlled substances. Listoe and Chavez were arrested and booked at the Robert Presley Detention Center for illegal narcotic sales.
On March 3, 2022, deputies served a narcotics search warrant at Listoe and Chavez’ residence in the 3200 block of Yellowstone Drive, city of Ontario. Deputies located fentanyl pills, methamphetamine and items indicative of the sales of controlled substances. Listoe and Chavez were charged with additional charges related to narcotic sales while in custody.
