-A +A
A Sacramento man was sentenced to 10 years in prison for selling drugs, and a judge issued a $25,000 bench warrant for his co-defendant’s arrest. On Feb. 4 Placer County Judge Colleen Nichols ordered Patrick Wayne Grady, 27, to spend the next 10 years in prison for selling methamphetamine in Roseville. Grady pleaded no contest to the felony charges and also admitted to the special allegation of carrying guns during the drug deal, according to Art Campos, spokesman for the Placer County District Attorney’s Office, in a press release issued Tuesday. Grady’s co-defendant, Breaonna Ashley Nunes, 21, did not show up to court and Nichols issued a $25,000 bench warrant for her arrest, according to Campos. Nunes was reportedly the girlfriend of former California Highway Patrol Officer Ruben Cesar Salgado. On Oct. 4 Salgado was sentenced to three years in prison for attempting to hire someone to kill a woman with the initials “R.M.” “R.M.” had reportedly previously sold drugs to Salgado and could have testified against him in court. Nunes is facing charges of sale of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine and possession of methamphetamine with a loaded handgun, all felonies, according to court documents. As of Tuesday Nunes was not in custody in Placer County Jail. ~Staff report
