Search warrant, probation checks net five arrests in Arbuckle on Friday


On Friday morning, the Colusa County Task Force executed a drug related search warrant on the 700 block of Second Street in Arbuckle, which resulted the arrest of two Arbuckle residents on drug and other charges.

Task Force agents arrested Daniel Moreno, 27, and Jose Alejandro Alvarez, 38, at the residence. Moreno was arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance, possession of controlled substance paraphernalia, and possession of ammunition by a convicted felon. Alvarez was arrested on suspicion of the same charges, as well as a charge of forgery.

“During the execution of the search warrant, we located a fictitious bill,” Task Force Sgt. Michael Bradwell said of the additional forgery charge.

They were both booked into the Colusa County Jail, with their bail set at $15,000 and $25,000 , respectively.

While the Task Force was executing the warrant, a citizen notified them of a person running in the area, which the citizen believed was related to the search warrant detail, Bradwell said. Colusa County Sheriff’s deputies were sent to check out the suspicious person. As it turned out, the man fleeing was actually unrelated to the search warrant, Bradwell said, but the deputies identified him as Arbuckle resident Guillermo Lomeli, 28, who they confirmed had an outstanding felony warrant in Colusa County. Lomeli continued to flee from the deputies but was eventually apprehended on Smokey Hollow Street at Eighth Street, where was arrested on the warrant, as well as on suspicion of violation of probation and resisting, delaying or obstructing an officer. He was booked into the Colusa County Jail, where he is being held on the warrant without bail.

Later in the day, while assisting Colusa County detectives, who were assisting state parole agents, the Task Force was called to the 400 block of Tacitus Street. It was there that Jacob Rivera Munoz, 35, of Arbuckle, was arrested for felony violation of parole.

“The Task Force conducted a probation search on another person at the residence, 33-year-old David Geyer, who was arrested for violation of probation and possession of drug paraphernalia,” Bradwell said.

Geyer was booked into the Colusa County Jail, with his bail set at $5,000.
