SIMI VALLEY – For the past four months the Simi Valley Police Department has been conducting an investigation into a heroin delivery service and narcotics trafficking. Two heroin deaths prompted the investigation.
On September 19th 26-year-old Tanner Fazli died at a home on the 1700 block of Ysrella Street of a heroin overdose. On October 13th 36-year-old Pedro Zamora also died of a heroin overdose.
Further investigation revealed a special delivery service that provided them with the drug. Police were able to secure a telephone number for the service.
The delivery service functions when a “customer” calls a dispatch number and places an order. The customer is directed to a location where a “courier” meets the customer and a transaction ensues.
Over the following months detectives continued their surveillance and intelligence gathering, and conducted a purchase of heroin through the service.
Finally, on January 4, teams of detectives served warrants and arrested 3 people, recovering 32 grams of heroin and $32,000.
35-year-old Rosario Teran Vargas, 28-year-old Daniel Anselmo Rios Delgado and 29-year old Yoelmmi Franco Sandoval were all arrested on various heroin possession and heroin sales charges, and criminal conspiracy.
Kudos to the Sim Valley Police Department for their persistent work.
