Two people arrested with drugs and guns

Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office detectives seized drugs, guns, and cash while serving several search warrants at two residences in Santa Rosa. This was the culmination of a month-long drug sales investigation by the Sheriff’s Office Property & Narcotics Investigations Unit.

On August 17, 2017 at about 3:00 p.m., detectives from the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office served two simultaneous search warrants, one located in the 3500 block of Brooks Avenue and the second located in the 200 block of Brand Road, both located in Santa Rosa.

During a search of the house on Brooks Avenue, detectives found approximately 320 grams of methamphetamine, packaging and scales used for drug sales, a Beretta .22 semi-automatic handgun, and $860.00 in cash. They arrested Kevin Cruz, 30 years old, from Santa Rosa. Cruz was booked into the Sonoma County jail for possession of narcotics for sales, possession of a firearm while committing a felony, and violation of probation. Cruz is currently on probation for transportation of methamphetamine.

During a search of the house on Brand Road, detectives found approximately 96 grams of cocaine, packaging and scales used for drug sales, $1,800.00 in cash, an AK47 rifle, an AR-15 rifle, and a .45 caliber semiautomatic pistol. Detectives arrested Ruben Arroyo, 23 years old, from Santa Rosa. Arroyo was booked into the Sonoma County jail for violation of probation, possession of narcotics for sales, and possession of firearms while committing a felony.

While the firearms from these cases are legal to possess in California, it is illegal to possess these firearms while committing the felony of selling narcotics.
