Two Month Investigation Leads To Drug Bust


A 22 year-old Santa Rosa resident has been arrested for the sale and transportation of methamphetamine and heroin.

After an investigation started by the Santa Rosa Police Department’s Narcotic Team in February of 2019, Gersain Martinez-Chavez was arrested outside of his residence on Acacia Lane on Wednesday where he was found in possession of 2 pounds of heroin and a quarter pound of methamphetamine. Upon searching his residence, approximately 3 pounds of methamphetamine and additional heroin were located along with about $8,500 in cash, two digital scales, and numerous pieces of packaging material. On top of these charges, Martinez-Chavez was also booked for selling drugs within 1,000 feet of a school zone.
