Police seized over 7½ pounds of heroin and meth from a suspect in northeast Santa Rosa.

Gersain Martinez-Chavez, 22, was arrested Wednesday at his home on the 600 block of Acacia Lane, following a search of his house and vehicles, according to a statement from the Santa Rosa Police Department. During the search, police said they found more than 4 pounds of heroin and over 3½ pounds of methamphetamine, all packaged in small baggies for sale.

Police began investigating Martinez-Chavez in February and Wednesday served a search warrant on his home and vehicles.

Martinez-Chavez was booked into Sonoma County Jail on suspicion of a range of drug-related charges, police said. Jail records show he was in custody Wednesday night and bail was set at $55,000.
