The ongoing efforts to curb the sale and proliferation of dangerous drugs in the Tenderloin led by the Drug Market Agency Coordination Center (DMACC) resulted in another drug dealing arrest, the seizure of roughly 3.5 lbs. of narcotics, and a loaded firearm. 

Over the course of more than one month San Francisco Police Officers assigned to the Narcotics Unit began an investigation on a suspected narcotics dealer who was selling drugs in the Tenderloin District. The officers developed probable cause to obtain authorized search warrants for the suspect’s two residences and vehicle.

Officers placed Moncada under arrest for probable cause developed during the month-long investigation, which involved selling narcotics. During the arrest, Moncada was with her 2-year-old child, and officers located and seized suspected narcotics from her person. Officers had Moncada’s vehicle towed for further investigation. With Moncada’s permission, her child was placed into the custody of a relative. 

Narcotics Unit officers, Tenderloin officers, and the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) responded to Moncada’s residences located on the 2500 block of 78th Ave. and the 9600 block of Edes Ave. in Oakland, California, and served the search warrants. During the search officers located a loaded firearm along with suspected fentanyl, methamphetamine, base rock cocaine, heroin, Oxycodone, and Xanax. Officers also located and seized evidence consistent with the use for sales of narcotics. 

Officers transported Moncada to San Francisco County Jail where she was booked for the following charges: Controlled Substance Possession for Sale (Fentanyl); Methamphetamine Possession for Sale, Base Cocaine Possession for Sale; Heroin, Possession for Sales; Maintaining a Premise where Narcotics being Used/Sold, Transportation of Controlled Substance, and Child Endangerment.
