A suspected drug dealer was recently arrested, resulting in over a pound of methamphetamine and $40,000 in cash being seized, according to an official press release from the Roseville Police Department.
Joshua Holmboe, 25, of Carmichael was reportedly arrested on suspicion of selling methamphetamine and narcotics, being a felon in possession of firearms, and other related charges. He is reportedly being held without bail in the Sacramento County Jail.
According to Roseville PD, narcotics detectives had suspected Holmboe was both selling illegal drugs directly to users and also supplying lower-level drug dealers, and some of those drugs were being sold and used in Roseville. On Tuesday, September 23, narcotics detectives and officers from Roseville’s Crime Suppression Unit went to Carmichael to search of Holmboe, who was reportedly a probationer. Records show he was arrested twice in 2011, and again in October last year on various charges of marijuana and controlled substance possession, sales, and transportation, as well as an illegal weapon and ammunition charge.
Officers found the suspect driving on Fair Oaks Boulevard near Sutter Avenue, detained him without incident, and conducted a probation search of his nearby home. An investigator from the US Department of Homeland Security reportedly assisted in the search.
During the search of Holmboe, his vehicle and his home, officers reportedly seized over a pound of meth, a large quantity of prescription narcotics, packaging materials, and other evidence of drug sales. Additionally, officers reportedly sized several loaded firearms — including both handguns and long guns — and more than $40,000 in currency. According to officers, two of the firearms were stolen — one had been taken during a residential burglary in Citrus Heights and the other during a residential burglary in Reno.
