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.
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.
