“In November of 2020, detectives from the Santa Rosa Police Department’s Narcotics Team began an investigation into possible narcotics trafficking by a Sonoma County resident. The subject, later identified as Miguel Angel Aleman Hernandez (31 years) was suspected of selling methamphetamine in the City of Santa Rosa and surrounding Sonoma County areas.
On Wednesday, December 16, 2020, at approximately 1500 hours detectives from the Santa Rosa Police Department contacted and detained Hernandez pursuant to a search warrant. Hernandez was contacted near his residence, located on Yuba Dr. During which time, detectives located nearly one-half pound of methamphetamine packaged for sales inside his vehicle.
A subsequent search of Hernandez’ residence revealed over 4 pounds of methamphetamine and nearly $12,000 in cash. Additional items indicative of drug trafficking was also located along with narcotics. These items included packaging material, digital scales, and multiple functioning cell phones.
Hernandez was transported to the Sonoma County Jail where he was booked for possession for sale and transportation of methamphetamine.
