Police arrested five people in Los Alamos last week for trafficking and possessing heroin in Los Alamos.
The arrests took place on Feb. 17-20, and yielded numerous prescription drugs and slightly more than two ounces of heroin (58.2 grams).
Most of the arrests occurred because the suspects were acting suspiciously, which attracted the attention from law enforcement, according to court records.
Arrested were Monica Cooper, 48, of Los Alamos, Celso Ramos, 35, of Santa Cruz, Deanna Doss, 28, of Santa Cruz, David Mondragon, 34, of Santa Fe and Kayla Gomez, 28, of Santa Fe.
Cooper was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance, one count of possession of drug paraphernalia and one count of shoplifting. Ramos was charged with trafficking a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance and for concealing his identity.
Doss was charged with trafficking a controlled substance, bringing contraband into a place of imprisonment, three counts of possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Gomez was charged with trafficking a controlled substance, three counts of possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
On Feb. 17, police received reports of a white Honda sedan driving “erratically” westbound into Los Alamos.
