Police BulletinPleasanton men busted in two drug cases
Suspicious behavior led to drug sales arrests of two Pleasanton men in separate incidents, police reports said.
In one, on June 13, police received a call about two men using drugs in a parked car. Officer Nicolas Schwarz found Matthew Farrington, 27, to be on probation, which allowed a search of the car. That search turned up bottles of Oxycontin and oxycodone pills, methadone pills and generic Xanax pills, along with numerous empty pill bottles and aluminum foil, which had been heated for the men to inhale drug fumes. Farrington was arrested for possession of a controlled substance for sale, possession of a controlled substance and paraphernalia possession.
Police found 9.8 grams of black tar heroin in the June 15 arrest of an 18-year-old from Pleasanton. Cooper Allan Eisenmann was arrested for possession of a controlled substance for sale and paraphernalia possession after police watched him drive and park "suspiciously." Eisenmann was taken into custody at about 2:34 p.m. in the 7400 block of Amador Valley Boulevard after a stop in which a police report said he'd been suspected of driving under the influence of opiates. Aluminum foil used to inhale drug fumes led to the paraphernalia charge, the report said.
