REDDING, Calif. - A Redding man was arrested after officers received complaints of drug activity at a problem house.

After complaints from neighbors of ongoing drug activity in the Parkview area, Redding officers decided to patrol the neighborhood on foot.

At 8 p.m., one of the Officers was walking on Leland Ave. at Leland Court when he noticed a suspicious subject leave one of the suspected problem houses.

32-year-old Martin Salcedo of Redding immediately ran once he saw the Officer. While running, Salcedo began reaching into his pockets trying to retrieve an unknown item.

Officers were able to catch Salcedo, he was in possession of 3 ounces of heroin, $500 in cash and packaging material. Officers discovered Salcedo was on Post Release Community Supervision for felon in possession of ammunition.

It was later discovered he was arrested three previous times since he moved to Redding earlier in 2019.

Salcedo was arrested and booked into the Shasta County Jail for possession of heroin for sales, obstructing a peace officer and violation of his PRCS terms.
