On January 31, 2014 at approximately 4:30PM, MVPD Officer Ienni, narcotics K9 Zeus and additional Team 5 patrol officers made a significant arrest of a wanted parolee, Ernesto Beltran, a 57 year-old out of Sunnyvale, CA. During a search, Zeus alerted on a bedroom dresser where officers located 11 grams of individually wrapped tar heroin bindles. Additionally, MVPD officers found $4,880 in U.S. currency, which was also confiscated as evidence. Beltran was booked into the San Jose Main Jail without incident.
“This arrest illustrates the importance of our patrol, K9 and investigative teams working together,” said Lt. M. Fisher. “Not only did this team make a solid arrest, but we were able to locate and confiscate heroin.”
Zeus’ current stats include locating:
1,089 pounds of marijuana
