Warrant issued for suspect in Menlo Park drug case

 

When 29-year-old Tamaseula Tyrone Afoa Ape didn't turn up at a court hearing on Dec. 20, the judge revoked his bail and issued an arrest warrant.

Mr. Ape, of East Palo Alto, is charged with multiple counts related to alleged drug sales. According to the district attorney's office, a Menlo Park police detective executing a search warrant at the suspect's apartment found bags of cocaine and a generic form of Xanax, oxycodone tablets, marijuana and "a digital scale disguised as a CD case."

He has two prior convictions related to a 2001 felony hit-and-run case, according to the district attorney's office. By failing to appear on Dec. 20, Mr. Ape forfeited a $100,000 bail bond and now faces a bail of $150,000 when found.
