Heroin dealers are many things, but reliable is not one of them.
After watching for five to six weeks, Roseville Police was ready to nab a supplier Thursday. But things don’t always go as planned.
“For our community, he’s semi-relevant. He’s not the guy that’s out stealing to support a drug habit, he’s supplying the guys who are out stealing to support their drug habit,” an investigator, who wished to remain anonymous, told FOX40.
The first stop proved fruitless, as with the second stop.
Cops eventually wound up at the suspect’s parents’ home in Rocklin, until he gets in the car and takes off, leading to a traffic stop off sunset.
The man police arrested, Mohammed Noor, denied having drugs on him or in his car.
Asko, the K-9, keyed on a small chunk of heroin and paraphernalia.
“A lot times they use a knife like this to cut chunks of heroin off. So, that residue, so my best estimation, that residue is heroin residue,” the investigator said.
Police also found marijuana.
“There’s no scales in there and I smoke marijuana. That’s the only thing I knew about; the scale is used to weigh out my marijuana for personal use, thank you,” Noor said.
Officers found a chunk of black tar heroin, which Noor denied was his.
From there, it was off to jail for Noor and off to mom and dad’s house for narcotics investigators.
Officers say the search for heroin continued at the jail, where they tell FOX40 a strip search revealed more heroin hidden in Noor’s backside.
