“On Tuesday, July 26th, the Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office received a Suspected Child Abuse Report (SCAR) alleging active drug abuse by a parent. Detectives began to investigate the allegation that 33-year-old Timothy Ball, who had a history of alcohol and opiate abuse, had recently relapsed. Investigators discovered that Ball had gone to rehab multiple times for addiction treatment. They also found physical evidence that Ball had recently relapsed on opiates while in the possession of firearms.

On Thursday, July 28th, detectives served a search warrant at Ball’s home in the area of Columbia Village Drive in Sonora and confiscated several firearms. The same day, investigators spoke with Ball at the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office, where Ball is employed as a Deputy Sheriff, and found additional evidence of opiate addiction. Ball was arrested and booked at the Dambacher Detention Center (DDC) on the charge of being an addict in possession of a firearm.

We are working in collaboration with Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office with this criminal investigation. Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office is conducting an administrative investigation based on their personnel rules and regulations. These investigations are ongoing and no further information will be released at this time.”
