A Santa Rosa man and a homeless woman were arrested on Sunday for drug related charges and no-bail felony warrants. It started when a deputy pulled over a BMW on Santa Rosa avenue driven by 42-year-old Leslie Spadoni of Santa Rosa noticing the plates on the car were registered to a Toyota. After learning that the plates were stolen, the deputy handcuffed Spadoni thinking the car might be stolen finding on him over 65 grams of methamphetamine and approximately 50 pills of hydrocodone or Vicodin. Deputies would Arrest Spadoni for drug charges and also 33-year-old Sarah McGee after she approached deputies claiming the car was hers with officers finding she had four no-bail felony warrants. Neither Spadoni nor McGee were able to prove the car was registered to either one of them.
