On Tuesday, February 23, 2016, Murrieta Police conducted a traffic stop in the area of White Leaf Lane and Buck Wood Way. Upon contact, the driver, later identified as Koki Soliai, admitted to the officers that there was marijuana and narcotic paraphernalia inside the vehicle. Based on that admission, a narcotics trained K9 was requested to assist with the investigation. The K9 responded to the location and alerted on several spots on the vehicle as well as the purse of one of the passengers. A records check was conducted on the driver and three passengers, Rudy Chacon, David Tuamoheloa and Rhiannon Alvarado. The check revealed that all four subjects had extensive criminal histories, Soliai had a suspended driver’s license, and Tuamoheloa had four warrants for his arrest. A search of the vehicle yielded ammunition, credit cards that had been reported stolen, forged fictitious checks, narcotics, narcotics paraphernalia and a digital scale. All four subjects were placed under arrest and booked into the Southwest Detention Center.
