A raid conducted at the residence of current Norwalk Planning Commissioner and 2016 Cerritos College Board of Trustees candidate Rosa Barragan by Norwalk Sheriff Deputies netted guns, money, and “enough drugs to call the parties involved ‘major players’ in the area,” Hews Media Group-Community News can confirm.
Two high-level sources in the city have confirmed the raid on the house and indicated that Barragan told Deputies that “her relatives owned the house” and that she was “living there and people inside the house were renting rooms.”
Deputies served the search warrant this morning and arrested one man after finding “massive amounts” of contraband.
According to the source, four locations were raided, two at 12127 and 12129 163 rd St. in Norwalk, the other two “cannot be revealed.”
According to public records, Barragan’s parents own the house at 12127 163rd.
Rosa Barragan owned 12129 163rd but sold the house to Jina Yang who, according to records, is her niece. Rosa resides at that address.
According to the source, the house was raided, Barragan was woken up and taken outside in her pajamas.
Three pounds of drugs “other than marijuana” was confiscated along with one gun and a cache of money.
Two arrests were made, but Deputies are still looking for another “high profile dealer.”
Captain Curtis Jensen of the Norwalk Sheriff’s Station told HMG-CN, “there was a raid on a house this morning, it is an ongoing active investigation into narcotic activity, but I cannot comment any further.”
When asked if Barragan lived at the house, Jensen once again stated he could not comment.
Barragan was honored by Assemblymember Ian Calderon last year as the 57th Assembly District 2015 Woman of the Year.
Calderon stated at the time, “I am so proud to honor Ms. Barragan as the 2015 Woman of the Year. She is a dedicated activist and a strong advocate for children and families in her community. ”
Barragan currently serves as the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District’s McKinney-Vento Program Coordinator and is the founding president of the Norwalk League of United Latin American Citizen (LULAC) Council #3148.
Her career in education spans 36 years at the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District and Cerritos College.
