Sheriff’s Deputy Guillermina Saldana said deputies were serving a search warrant in the 4100 block of E. 10th Street, near Wilson High School, at about 6:30 a.m. when four suspects climbed on the roof to evade deputies.

With assistance from Long Beach police, deputies set up a perimeter. After a two-hour standoff, the suspects climbed down from the roof and were detained without incident, she said.

Three of the people were questioned and released. David Penaloza, 23, of Long Beach was booked on suspicion of unlawful possession of a specified controlled substance while armed with a firearm, and possession for sales, with bail set at $80,000, according to the sheriff’s department.

The investigation was conducted by detectives from the sheriff’s Operation Safe Streets Bureau.

Long Beach Unified School District spokesman Chris Eftychiou said Wilson High was not placed on lockdown during the activity but the school’s main entrance on 10th Street was temporarily closed and students arriving for first period were directed to other entrances as a precaution.
