Santa Clara Police Arrest 2 in San Jose After Routine Warrant Check

Santa Clara police arrested two people in San Jose on Wednesday after locating one who had known prior offenses and finding that she and another individual were under the influence of stimulants, police said.

At approximately 11:30 a.m., an SCPD officer was conducting a warrant and probation check on the 2100 block of Gold Street when the officer observed Tosha Bailey, a woman well known to law enforcement for numerous arrests, near a car in the motel parking lot, according to police. She was with a man, later identified by police as Joseph Paulson.

Before approaching Bailey and Paulson, the officer made sure that Bailey was on active probation with search terms. When he did move toward them, Bailey was argumentative and attempted to pull away after she was told she was being detained, police said. During the investigation of the incident, police said Bailey admitted that she had used methamphetamine and was in possession of other people’s personal identification.

A search of Bailey and Paulson’s vehicle yielded property and forms of identification belonging to several victims as well as drug paraphernalia, an illegal spring-loaded knife and a fictitious check. A search of their motel room provided police with two computers, a printer, blank check paper, additional forms of identification belonging to numerous victims and additional drug paraphernalia, according to police.

Both parties were arrested and transported to the Santa Clara County jail.
