Santa Rosa traffic stop leads to 3 drug arrests

Santa Rosa police Friday night arrested three men suspected of possessing and transporting methamphetamine for sale.

The men were all in a Nissan Altima stopped by a Santa Rosa officer at 9:18 p.m. near Hoen Avenue and Lynn Court for a minor vehicle code violation.

The driver, Isac Arturo Navarro-Chavez, 27, of Santa Rosa, did not have a California driver's license or any valid identification, police reported.

A search of the vehicle turned up 3.6 ounces of methamphetamine and about $4,000 in cash.

Also arrested were Luis David Valenzuela-Salgado, a 21-year-old Mexican national, and Josue Gallego-Barbosa, a 19-year-old Mexican national.
