Four people were detained and two of them arrested following a probation search in Tuolumne County last week.

The Tuolumne County Sheriff High-Risk Supervision Team, consisting of probation officers and Sheriff’s deputies, executed the search at a residence in Columbia on Wednesday, September 30.

During the search, authorities reportedly discovered over a quarter-ounce of methamphetamine parsed out in small packages, bundles of cash totaling about $1,500, packaging materials, and drug paraphernalia.

Authorities say they also discovered the occupants of the home had removed the PG&E meter on the breaker box and were powering the home illegally.

The occupants — Thoris Foster (56), William Short (42), April Crosby (50), and Steven Linn (54) — were all detained.

Crosby and Linn, both wanted on misdemeanor charges, were issued citations at the scene and released. Short, however, turned out to be wanted on a felony warrant and was taken into custody.

Foster was also arrested on suspicion of possession of methamphetamine for sale, operating a drug house, and theft of utility services.
