Police arrested a suspected drug dealer while staking out a Santa Cruz neighborhood on Friday, police said. At around 7 p.m., while watching the 100 block of Dake Avenue after receiving reports of drug activity at a residence on that block, police saw a car known to belong to Javier Pina leave the house. Pina, 37, of Santa Cruz, had a felony warrant for his arrest for possession of a controlled substance for sales.

Police pulled the car over in the 300 block of Mission Street. Pina was arrested for the warrant and for suspicion of being under the influence of heroin. After a search, police said they located heroin in the car and arrested Pina’s passenger, Jean Perez, a 30-year-old resident of Santa Cruz. Police suspected Perez was under the influence of heroin as well, and both were booked into Santa Cruz County jail.

  • One last thing the Officer who made up these False Reports Officer Hoppe. Should and needs to stop Harassing My Girlfriend and Myself. Jeana has been arrested by Hoppe countless times. Has touched her inappropriately while searching her and has made false reports about her being under the influence. As he has Me.
    Officer Hoppe and all PD personnel should be investigated for their part in everyone of our arrests. Please leave us alone…
