Two people were arrested Wednesday in French Valley in connection with an ongoing investigation into heroin sales in Temecula, according to police.
Richard Dennis Murphy Jr., 27, and Rebecca Lacy Grimshaw, 23, were taken into custody when a search warrant was served at about 5 p.m. in the 31400 block of Rivera Street in Winchester, according to a news release written by Temecula police Lt. Doug McGrew.
The Temecula Police Department's Special Enforcement Team had been working on the investigation, which led them to that address where they believe the primary suspect lived, McGrew said.
While serving the warrant Wednesday, McGrew said officers detained Murphy and Grimshaw away from the property.
"Murphy was in possession of five grams of heroin, and Grimshaw was under the influence," McGrew said. "Officers entered the home with the search warrant and obtained an additional 20 grams of heroin."
Grimshaw was arrested on suspicion of being under the influence, and Murphy on suspicion of possession of heroin for sale, the lieutenant said.
Grimshaw has since been released from Southwest Detention Center on the misdemeanor charge, while Murphy remains jailed on no bail and faces a probation revocation hearing, according to sheriff's jail records.
