Jason Gonzalez and Stacia Kendrick busted, baby seized, in latest raid of meth "flop house"
|Some of the items seized during yesterday's raid.|
Despite its modest size, though, the house apparently has had lots of people living in it over time. A December raid -- one of several that have targeted the structure -- turned up thirteen residents, including an infant, with conditions described as "squalid."
According to the complaint against Nuanez, who's listed as the property's owner along with his late wife, he "has stated to associates that he has been trading narcotics for rent at his house, thus allowing his home to become a 'flop house' for methamphetamine users."
No wonder police officers are so familiar with Chez Nuanez. The document (on view below) counts 114 calls for service since January 2008, with a wide variety of complaints represented. They include (deep breath):
A Silverio Nuanez mug shot.
Criminal mischief; civil problems; parking complaints; disturbances; drunk subjects; noise complaints; loose dog; warrant arrests for wanted parties; domestic disturbance; narcotics complaints; theft; restraining order violations; trespass; harassment; summons issued; unwanted parties; assault; loitering; and suspicious persons/activities.And that's not to mention the assorted SWAT team raids, outlined in the complaint like so:
• In August, 2011, two people were reportedly arrested and two bags of meth were found, along with drug paraphernalia.
• In October 2012, three people were arrested, and five bags of meth were discovered.
• In the aforementioned December 2013 raid, five people were arrested, but no drugs were found, apparently because residents were able to flush their stashes down the toilet before cops entered. But drug paraphernalia and a stolen bicycle were located, as was an infestation of bed bugs -- only one reason the four month old living there was turned over to social services.
All of this activity frustrates those living near Nuanez, as well as the staff and congregation of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, directly across the street.
