“On Thursday, October 20th, 2022, at approximately 12:00 PM, the Neighborhood Police Unit (NPU), with the assistance of patrol officers, served a search warrant at a residence located within the 4200 block of Bradley Drive. This search warrant service was the culmination of an ongoing investigation into possible drug activity and drug transactions occurring at that residence based on citizen complaints that were received following this year’s National Night Out.

Upon arrival, officers contacted and detained five adults at the location, including: Caitlin Corron, 41 years of Redding, Tyrone Corron, 44 years of Redding, and Garred Smith, 33 years of Redding. Caitlin Corron and Tyrone Corron are siblings. Caitlin Corron refused to exit the residence after multiple public address announcements and officers located and detained her inside her bedroom after they made entry. Inside the residence, officers located methamphetamine, a large quantity of marijuana, a large quantity of suboxone sublingual strips without a prescription, several tablets of an additional prescription medication without a prescription, ammunition in various calibers, and multiple items of drug paraphernalia. Suboxone is a prescription medicine and scheduled narcotic used to treat opioid addiction in adults.

Further investigation revealed Caitlin Corron to be a methamphetamine addict responsible for the high volume of foot traffic coming in and out of the residence that had previously been observed. Caitlin Corron admitted that people came over to her house regularly to use methamphetamine with her. Caitlin Corron further confessed to attempting to destroy or conceal methamphetamine that was in her bedroom when police arrived to serve the search warrant.
Caitlin Corron was arrested and booked into the Shasta County Jail for maintaining a drug house, possession of controlled substances (methamphetamine), narcotics (suboxone) and drug paraphernalia, unlawful possession of ammunition, and destroying or concealing evidence. Additional drug offenses will be filed against Caitlin Corron with the Shasta County District Attorney’s Office.

Tyrone Corron was arrested for possession of narcotics (methamphetamine), possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of a chemical agent by a prohibited person. He was cited and released at the scene.

Garred Smith was arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia. He was also cited and released at the scene.

We would like to thank our partners at City of Redding Code Enforcement who responded to the residence to assess and document several potential violations.

The Neighborhood Police Unit will continue to respond to citizen complaints in identifying and addressing residences in our neighborhoods that endanger public safety and pose a risk to our community.”
