Petaluma police raided a house that had long been suspected of dealing drugs on Thursday morning, leading to the arrest of five people who were inside the Weaverly Drive house.
"There have been numerous complaints from area residents about suspect drug activity at this property," said Sgt. Ed Crosby on Thursday. "It's been going on for at least six months."
The complaints led police to seek a search warrant, which was executed about 10:30 a.m. on March 27. When they searched the home, police found both heroin and drug paraphernalia, and several of the occupants were wanted in association with other crimes.
They arrested Kyle Brett Richardson, 52, of Petaluma and Ashley Christine Kontos, 24, for possession of a controlled substance, possession of narcotics paraphernalia and probation violations. Jennifer Marie Falconer, 26, was arrested on three felony warrant charges; Anthony Manuel Silva, 25, was arrested for being under the influence of a controlled substance and Christopher Gabriel Timm, 27, was arrested on a misdemeanor warrant.
All five were booked into the Sonoma County Jail.
