CCPD: 3 arrested after police find suspected cocaine and $4,500 cash with help of K9

Three men were arrested in Crescent City Saturday after law enforcement found suspected cocaine, thanks to the help of a police dog, plus around $4,500 in cash, according to the Crescent City Police Dept. (CCPD).

On May 12, CCPD along with their K9 Kai assisted the California Highway Patrol and the Del Norte County Sheriff's Office with a traffic enforcement stop in the area of U.S. Highway 101 and Elk Valley Cross Road. K9 Kai alerted to the presence of narcotics on the vehicle, the CCPD said, and a subsequent search led to officers finding about 11.2 grams of suspected cocaine (packaged separately) and $4,545 in U.S. currency.

Maximo Perez was arrested on warrants, the CCPD said. Jeremiah Geronimo, 27, and Javier Perez, 20, were arrested during the traffic stop for possession of cocaine, possession of cocaine for sale and transportation of cocaine for sale, police said.
