Vallejo Man Arrested After Cocaine, Drugs, Cash Found In 2 Homes

VALLEJO (CBS SF) — A man suspected of selling cocaine was arrested after detectives discovered narcotics, handguns, and more than $12,000 at two Vallejo homes, according to the Solano County Sheriff’s Office.

Earnest Washington III, 36, was detained after the sheriff’s office issued a search warrant to a home in the 1000 block of Topsail Drive at about 7:10 a.m. Thursday, authorities said.

Investigators allegedly found 2 pounds of rock cocaine, two pistols, and $12,600 at the home.

At about 7:45 a.m., detectives served a second search warrant at a house in the 200 block of Cypress Avenue, where they found about one-quarter gram of rock cocaine, 1 ounce of marijuana, and packaging material commonly used in the sale of illegal drugs, the sheriff’s office said.

Detectives also found paperwork that allegedly links Washington to both homes, according to the sheriff’s office.

Sheriff’s deputies arrested Washington on suspicion of cocaine sales, being armed during the commission of a felony, committing a felony while out on bail, and maintaining a residence used to sell drugs.

Washington was booked into the Solano County jail and his bail was set at $250,000.

Detectives from the Solano County Narcotics Enforcement Team and the California Multi-Jurisdictional Methamphetamine Enforcement Team were involved with Washington’s arrest.
