An investigation by the Turlock Police Department into a strong-armed robbery led to a drug bust that included the seizure of heroin and the arrest of four adults.

The drug bust was set into motion Wednesday morning when a 30-year-old man contacted the police department to report he had been robbed the night before.

The victim said he had been robbed of his gold chains, watch and EBT card, according to Turlock Police spokesman Sgt. Stephen Webb. The victim said the robbery occurred in the 400 block of Wolfe Avenue late Tuesday night.

Webb said the victim knew his robber and identified him as Donald Bell, 44, of Turlock.

Bell was located Wednesday at a home in the 2000 block of Peace Way. He was arrested for suspicion of robbery and a parole violation, according to the police department.

During the arrest the Turlock Narcotics Enforcement team was called to the scene to assist and they found heroin and evidence of drug sales inside the home, Webb said.

Arrested at the home were: Sanchez Angelo, 25, on suspicion of possession and sales of narcotics; Mary Moore, 32, on a misdemeanor theft warrant; and Stacey Coslow, 22, for a probation violation.

The drug investigation is ongoing.
