PLEASANTON — Police arrested a pair of suspected drug traffickers one block away from the Stoneridge Shopping Center.  An officer who spotted an altered license plate nabbed them.

In the first place, just after 5 p.m. on October 9, an officer initiated a traffic stop to investigate a traffic code violation. A license plate on a car traveling on Springdale Avenue appeared to have been altered.

“Proactive policing and traffic stops can often lead to the discovery of illegal activity,” Pleasanton police said in a statement. That’s precisely what happened in this instance.

Because of the altered license plate, the driver and passenger found themselves getting in much bigger trouble. Police recovered a stolen disabled parking placard—and plenty of evidence of illicit drug trafficking.

Inside the car, authorities found narcotics, cannabis and drug paraphernalia in their possession. In addition, they also confiscated large amounts of methamphetamine, heroin and prescription medicines as evidence.

Police arrested the driver and passenger for numerous felonies and misdemeanors, mostly related to illicit drugs –

Finally, Kaczanowski faces 11 charges, including felonies for the sale and possession of controlled substances. Similarly, Olvera faces 13 charges, related to possession and sales of drugs. In addition, she faces charges for possession of fraudulent personal information, and stolen property.
