Five people were arrested Sunday on suspicion of selling methamphetamine and weapons charges after Chino Hills police went to a hotel just north of Chino Hills High School on a report on suspicious circumstances.

April Cabrera, 30, of Apple Valley; Jeremy Pardue, 44, and Brandon Ruiz, 45, both Fountain Valley; Jose Diaz, 45, of Westminster; and Noushig Charshafjian, 42, of Costa Mesa, were booked into the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga, according to Chino Hills Police Detective Kyle Glozer.

The detective said Mr. Diaz is on Post Release Community Supervision probation for a previous drug sales conviction and had an active felony warrant for his arrest.

Deputies went to the TownePlace Suites by Marriott at 15881 Pomona Rincon Road around noon on a report of suspicious activity, finding Ms. Cabrera, Mr. Ruiz, Mr. Pardue and Mr. Diaz inside a hotel room.

“Deputies located items inside the room indicating it was being used for drug sales,” Detective Glozer said.

During the investigation, deputies served a search warrant on an adjacent hotel room, finding the fifth suspect in possession of suspected stolen checks and credit cards, Detective Glozer said.

The case remains under investigation.

Anyone with information can call the Chino Hills Police Department at 364-2000 or the WeTip Hotline at (800) 782-7463.
