A monthlong investigation into possible drug sales at a Paso Robles home ended Saturday with the arrest of two women on suspicion of possession of heroin and methamphetamine for sale and drug paraphernalia.

On Saturday morning, members of the Paso Robles Police Department’s Special Enforcement Team served a search warrant in the 1800 block of Kimberly Drive and seized approximately 30 grams of methamphetamine, 9.6 grams of heroin and some cash.

Paso Robles police Sgt. David Bouffard said the investigation began following several complaints from neighbors of possible drug activity at the house.

Bouffard said Jennifer Dennine Haagensen, 43, who lives at the home, was arrested on suspicion of felony methamphetamine and heroin possession for sale, as well as misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. A second woman was also arrested for misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police say both women were booked into the San Luis Obispo County Jail. As of Monday afternoon, Haagensen remained in custody in lieu of $25,000 bail.
