Narcotic sales arrest

Submitted By Sgt. Frank Morales, Milpitas PD

On 02-26-13, at about 10:18 a.m., a plainclothes Milpitas Police detective saw a female running from the parking lot of the Executive Inn, located at 95 Dempsey Rd. The detective observed a male subject in the parking lot acting suspiciously and appeared to be looking for the female. The detective contacted the female and learned she was a parolee at large. As officers approached the male, he fled on foot and was apprehended after a short foot pursuit that led into a neighboring business.

During the course of the investigation, detectives located over an ounce of heroin, over an ounce of methamphetamine, marijuana cigarettes dipped in PCP and several syringes belonging to the male suspect, who was identified as San Jose resident Richard Gomez. The female suspect was identified as San Jose resident Lena Rocha. Gomez was arrested for possessing heroin, methamphetamine, and PCP for sale, providing false identification and resisting arrest. Rocha was arrested and booked at the Santa Clara County Main Jail for being a parolee at large and under the influence of narcotics.
