Burbank Police arrested Vartan Samani, a 37-year-old resident of Burbank, for charges related to possession of methamphetamine, including a charge for bringing drugs into the Burbank Jail, on Thursday, April 3.
Officers on patrol near the 300 block of E. Elmwood Avenue first spotted Samani in the area just before 6:00 p.m. Thursday.
