Valley of Peace resident busted with drugs during GSU operation

Jose Alfredo Herrera

Nineteen-year-old Jose Alfredo Herrera, a resident of Valley of Peace Village, has been charged with possession of a controlled drug with intent to supply, kept firearm without a gun license and two counts of kept ammunition, following a raid of his residence by personnel attached to the Gang Suppression Unit on Thursday morning.  While an initial search inside the home yielded nothing, the officers discovered a black garbage bag containing a loaded sixteen gauge shotgun with a galvanized pipe affixed to its barrel hidden in a tree.  A further search produced another sixteen gauge shotgun inside a black plastic bag on the top of a tree trunk, as well as a white bucket containing various measures of cannabis amounting to six hundred and fifty grams inside five plastic bags, along with a scale and several baggies.  Herrera is reportedly a member of the MS-13 gang operating in Valley of Peace.
