“I would like to commend the San Francisco Police Department as well as our other federal and state law enforcement partners who are working together through the drug market agency coordination center to identify and arrest suspected drug dealers, said District Attorney Brooke Jenkins.  “Through this collaboration we will be able to develop strong cases for our prosecutors to take the fight from the street to the courtroom in our efforts to dismantle open-air drug markets, impose consequences for suspected drug dealers and make our neighborhoods livable.”

San Francisco Police report that at approximately 2:40 PM on August 22, 2023, the Narcotics Unit officers located Ms. Moncada, in her vehicle on the 100 block of Russ Street.  Officers placed Moncada under arrest for probable cause developed during the month-long investigation, which involved selling narcotics. During the arrest Moncada was with her 2-year-old child and officers located and seized suspected narcotics from her person. Officers had Moncada’s vehicle towed for further investigation. With Moncada’s permission her child was placed into the custody of a relative. 

Narcotics Unit officers, Tenderloin officers, and the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) responded to Moncada’s residences located on the 2500 block of 78th Ave. and the 9600 block of Edes Ave. in Oakland, California and served the search warrants. During the search officers located a loaded firearm along with suspected fentanyl, methamphetamine, base rock cocaine, heroin, and Oxycodone and Xanax. Officers also located and seized evidence consistent to the use for sales of narcotics.

Ms. Moncada’s is currently in custody with no bail set.  Her next court dates are August 28, 2023, for a bail hearing and September 7, 2023, for the preliminary hearing in this matter.  If convicted of all charges, and all allegations are found to be true, she is facing more than 18 years in State Prison.

Between January 1, 2023, and August 21, 2023, the District Attorney’s Office filed 566 felony narcotics sales cases.  Pre-trial detention has been sought in 204 egregious felony narcotics cases because of the extreme public safety risk posed by alleged drug dealers.  The court has only granted 17 detention motions.
