A Carmichael man who was on probation is in jail, accused of selling illegal drugs and supplying drugs to dealers.
Joshua Frederick Holmboe, 25, was arrested last week by Roseville police after they searched his home and reported finding a large quantity of illegal drugs, several firearms and evidence of high-level drug sales, including more than $40,000 in cash.
Roseville narcotics detectives suspected that Holmboe was selling illegal drugs directly to users and supplying lower-level drug dealers, and that some of those drugs were being sold and used in Roseville, a Police Department news release states. On Tuesday, narcotics detectives and officers from Roseville’s Crime Suppression Unit searched for Holmboe in Carmichael. They spotted him driving on Fair Oaks Boulevard near Sutter Avenue and detained him without incident. Assisted by an investigator from the U.S Department of Homeland Security, the Roseville officers then conducted a probation search of Holmboe’s home.
Officers seized more than a pound of methamphetamine, a large quantity of prescription narcotics, packaging materials and other evidence of drug sales, police said. They also seized several firearms, including handguns and long guns, and more than $40,000 in currency. Police said two of the firearms were stolen – one during a burglary of a Citrus Heights residence and the other during a residential burglary in Reno.
Holmboe was arrested on suspicion of selling methamphetamine and narcotics, being a felon in possession of firearms and other related charges. He is being held without bail in the Sacramento County Jail.
