Police in Santa Cruz arrested a man suspected of selling heroin after attempting to give him a probation drug test on Saturday, police said. Police approached Jose Godoy, 25, in a business in the 200 block of Sylvania Avenue for the drug test at 3:40 p.m. Godoy ran from the officers, police said, and tried to toss around 10 grams of suspected heroin on the roof of a nearby business.
However, the suspected heroin hit a wall and bounced back toward Godoy, police said. Police arrested Godoy in the 100 block of Harvey West Boulevard, and police said Godoy resisted arrest in the process. Godoy was arrested on suspicion of possessing heroin for sale, destruction of evidence, probation violation, resisting arrest, possession of drug paraphernalia and committing a felony while released on bail.
He had previously been arrested by the California Highway Patrol on Jan. 4 for other drug and theft-related felonies, police said. Godoy was treated at a local hospital for minor injuries and booked into Santa Cruz County Jail.
