Nearby residents reported a suspicious occupied vehicle, a white Isuzu SUV, parked on the 1000 block of California Street around 7 a.m. on Monday, June 24. The occupants, a 29-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman, both transients, were asleep inside, and the man attempted to start up the car when the officer tapped him on the shoulder through the open window, according to police spokeswoman Katie Nelson.
Officers searched the car and reported finding small bags of heroin, burglary tools, stolen license plates, drug paraphernalia and 40 gift cards that had not been activated, Nelson said.
The car had also been reported stolen out of a neighboring city.
The man, who was in the driver's seat, was arrested on suspicion of possessing stolen property, burglary tools, drug paraphernalia and a controlled substance. He was also suspected of being under the influence of a controlled substance.
The woman was also arrested on suspicion of drug charges. She remained in Santa Clara County Jail as of Wednesday morning with a $23,500 bail.
