A 25-year-old man was arrested and booked on drug possession charges, but only after he burrowed himself into an attic crawl space beneath layers of insulation while trying to evade police officers, Santa Rosa police said. Officers arrived outside the Maribelle Apartments on Apple Creek Lane at about 4 p.m., after receiving a report of a drug sale in progress in the parking lot. Police found Phillip Dominguez, of Santa Rosa, in possession of methamphetamine in a car parked in the lot. Dominguez ran from officers, who
pursued him into the apartment complex and into a second-floor apartment. Dominguez was no where to be found, and the K-9 deployed failed to sniff him out, but officers were given a lead by a neighbor, who heard movement above their apartment.    Entering the crawlspace above the second-story apartment, officers located Dominguez, who was apparently able to squeeze hrough a hole in an attic firewall to access a small hatch, hiding under insulation, police said. Outside, 22-year-old Santa Rosa resident Jessica Johnson, an associate of Dominguez’s, attempted to leave the scene in the same vehicle  where officers found Dominguez. She was detained at the scene, police said. Dominguez was arrested and booked into Sonoma County Jail for possession of methamphetamine, resisting arrest and violation of probation. Johnson was booked at the county jail for possession of ethamphetamine and interfering with a police investigation, along with unrelated warrants.
