A weekend drug arrest prompted sheriff's deputies to later raid an Eastvale home, where they found small amounts of methamphetamine and heroin, a Riverside County sheriff's official said Friday.
Three Eastvale residents were taken into custody Wednesday night when the deputies served a search warrant at the home in the 7600 block of Turtle Mountain Circle. They also uncovered several stolen Social Security cards, credit cards and other forms of identification in addition to the drugs, sheriff's Sgt. Andrew Elia said.
Sommer Strickland, a probationer, Jeffrey Dines, 29, and Jarred Wallander, 28, a parolee, were arrested for alleged drug crimes. Strickland and Dines also were arrested on suspicion of theft and fraud, Elia said.
Strickland and Wallander remained in custody today but Dines was released Thursday after posting $5,000 bail, jail records showed.
An arrest near the Eastvale home Saturday night led the deputies to investigate and obtain the search warrant.
Sheriff's deputies had spotted someone throwing out a large bag containing methamphetamine and a .38 caliber revolver from a vehicle they tried pulling over Saturday.
The vehicle was seen leaving the home and the bag was recovered, Elia said.
The driver, Brian Nunn, 28, of El Cajon, was arrested on suspicion of transporting methamphetamine and being a felon in possession of a loaded firearm, Elia said.
Jail records showed Nunn was booked for suspicion of possessing a controlled substance with a fire arm and other drug charges and was released Tuesday after posting $50,000 bail.
Nunn's passenger, Tayler Jenkins, 22, of Norco, was arrested for an alleged probation violation and suspicion of being under the influence of a controlled substance, Elia said.
Jenkins was released from custody Sunday when she posted $5,000 bail.
