A Temecula father and son were arrested Thursday for what police believe to be possessing and selling heroin, and possession of a loaded firearm.
The Murrieta Police Department Special Enforcement Team served a narcotics-related search warrant on Roger Hummel, 48 and Travis Hummel, 21, at 2:30 p.m. at a Somerset Apartments residence on Stonewood Road in Temecula, said Murrieta police Sgt. Tony Conrad in a news release.
“Detectives believed the targets of the warrant were active heroin dealers in the Temecula and Murrieta area,” Sgt. Conrad said.
An ounce of heroin that was prepared and packaged for sale was recovered during the warrant search, he said. A shotgun and rifle along with evidence consistent with narcotics sales were also recovered.
The pair was booked at the Southwest Detention Center on suspicion of the charges.
