SANTA ROSA — Two men have been arrested in connection to a drug trafficking investigation following the service of a search warrant at a home on Powderhorn Avenue.
Back in June of this year, Santa Rosa Police Department’s Narcotics Team began investigating 24-year-old Javier Alejandro Pacheco-Moya and, later, 18-year-old Javier Alejandro Orozco-Romero after developing cause for suspicion that the two were involved in drug sales.
The two were seen leaving their home on August 7th and were detained on the street, where Pacheco-Moya was found to be in possession of almost two pounds of heroin.
A search warrant was also served at their residence, where investigators located more heroin, half a pound of meth, and $15,000 in cash. Other items indicative of drug sales were also discovered: digital scales, clean and unused packaging materials, and pay-and-owe sheets.
Both suspects were booked into the Sonoma County jail on suspicion of possession of heroin and methamphetamine for sale, conspiracy to distribute narcotics, and dealing drugs within a school zone.
