SRJC PD arrests an unauthorized person at the Frank P. Doyle Library on Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2024 in Santa Rosa

Santa Rosa Junior College District Police arrested a man who was in possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia Wednesday afternoon at the Frank P. Doyle Library on the Santa Rosa campus. 

Ricardo Camacho Hernandez, 25, was arrested after creating a disturbance and swearing at SRJC library staff.  “The library [staff] knew that he was not authorized to be on campus and they gave us a call,” said District Police Chief Robert Brownlee. Following the call, an officer arrived at Doyle Library and searched Hernandez. The officer found that he was in possession of a controlled substance, according to SRJC District Police.

A student witness who wished to remain anonymous said the interaction was very calm. “He looked upset, understandably, but went peacefully. I was surprised when they handcuffed him,” the student said.

Hernandez was placed in handcuffs and removed from the building. He was processed and booked into Sonoma County Jail and will be charged with being an “unauthorized person on campus [and] possession of a controlled substance and paraphernalia,” Brownlee said.
