8 Arrested in Roseville Police Drug and ID Theft Operation




Roseville Police detectives, following up on a Roseville drug case, searched a home in Sacramento and found evidence of methamphetamine sales and identity theft involving scores of victims.  They arrested eight people.  

On August 15, a narcotics detective stopped a car in the 900 block of Parry Street in connection with suspected drug dealing.  They searched the car and the occupants, finding stolen checks and several falsified ID cards using stolen identity information, as well as evidence of methamphetamine sales.   The two occupants of the car were arrested.  

Yesterday detectives served a search warrant at the Sacramento home of one of the suspected drug dealers.  They found packaged methamphetamine and other evidence of drug sales, and a large amount of fraudulently obtained personal financial information from victims in Roseville and other areas of the region, including forged ID cards, credit cards, and equipment and materials used to make fraudulent checks and ID cards.  They also found items indicating gang membership.  There were four children in the residence, who were turned over to the care of children's protective authorities.  Detectives are still combing through the large amount of evidence that was seized, but they estimate they've recovered stolen identity information from close to one hundred victims. 

The following people were arrested: 

Carlos Aranda, 32 of Sacramento, on suspicion of identity theft, criminal conspiracy, participating in a criminal street gang, and committing a felony while out on bail for another felony.  He's being held in the Placer County Jail on $75,000 bail.

Victoria Carrasco Lewis, age 49 of Sacramento, on suspicion of identity theft, participating in a criminal street gang, and criminal conspiracy.  She's being held in the Placer County Jail on $80,000 bail.
 
Monica Elisa Delacruz, age 33 of Sacramento, on suspicion of possessing methamphetamine for sale, forgery, identity theft, participating in a criminal street gang, and criminal conspiracy.  She's being held in the Placer County Jail on $50,000 bail.

Sabrina Sosa Padilla-Pimentel, age 30 of Sacramento, on suspicion of identity theft, participating in a criminal street gang, and criminal conspiracy.  She's being held in the Placer County Jail on $50,000 bail.

Marc Anthony Lucero, age 30 of Plumas Lake, on suspicion of possessing methamphetamine for sale, identity theft, participating in a criminal street gang and criminal conspiracy.  He's being held in the Placer County Jail on $125,000 bail.

Robert Carrasco, age 51 of Sacramento, on Placer and Sacramento County warrants for possession of methamphetamine and driving on a suspended license.  He's being held in the Placer County Jail on $2,500 bail.

Ladislao Carrasco, age 44, on suspicion of possessing methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.  He's being held in the Sacramento County Jail on $605,000 bail.
 
Victoria Lisa  Lucero, age 52, on suspicion of possessing methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.  She's being held in the Sacramento County Jail. Her bail isn't known at ths time.

The Roseville Police Department is committed to combating both drug trafficking and identity theft-crimes that are often connected to each other.  It's common now for officers to arrest someone for theft or drug possession, and to find them to be in possession not only of drugs but of stolen credit cards and ID.    Thieves will break into cars or steal unattended purses and wallets to support their drug habits, and then collect credit and ID cards from these thefts to use for fraud.    We urge citizens to never leave their purses or wallets in their cars or other unattended places, to closely monitor their bank and credit card activity and call their bank immediately if they notice anything suspicious, to shred financial information before throwing it away, and to review their free credit reports annually.
