John Wayne Price, 38, was arrested after investigators allegedly found a large amount of cocaine base and a stolen 9 mm semi-automatic pistol during the search. After being booked into San Mateo County jail for possession for sale of cocaine base and having a firearm as a felon, he posted $100,000 bail and was released.
Menlo Park Acting Commander Eric Cowans said investigators were led to the suspect after receiving a complaint of ongoing drug sales. He declined to release the value of the drugs investigators confiscated, but said "it was much more than personal use amount."
The home in East Palo Alto reportedly belonged to friends of Mr. Price, police said. Also arrested was a woman found in the residence during the search, 49-year-old Yolanda Wright of East Palo Alto, who was wanted on a probation violation warrant related to a prior narcotics charge, Cmdr. Cowans said.
