Busy Weekend for Tuolumne Deputies Ended in Two Meth Busts.

Sonora, CA...Late Friday night, one of our deputies made a traffic stop on Hwy 108 near Hwy 49 because the driver was impeding traffic and the car’s license plate was obstructed. Driver, 59-year-old Dawn Ellis of Delhi was arrested after a search of her truck and belongings turned up more than 71 grams of methamphetamine and psilocybin mushrooms. Ellis also had a methamphetamine pipe, multiple empty plastic bags, a digital scale, and over $4,000 in cash.




Early Sunday morning, a Deputy attempted to make a traffic stop on a car for expired registration and driving through the road closure on Jamestown Road. The driver failed to stop and quickly turned into a driveway of a home in the 18400 block of Jamestown Road. When the vehicle finally came to a stop the passenger ran from the car.
The driver was identified as 45-year-old Michael Brown of Oakdale. During a search, we recovered a digital scale and 165 grams of methamphetamine.

Both Ellis and Brown were booked into the Tuolumne County Jail for possession and transportation of methamphetamine for sale.

Indian Casinos are drug traffickers

All of the Indian Casinos are the link to state wide drug trafficking. Past time to start shutting them down so they can get a real job other than drug trafficking.

    How come we never read about Meth busts in Calaveras county?

      Prolly because we have a lot less population than Tuolumne County. You need to look at statistics also like how many busts per capita (1000) population. Also probably because there is less money "floating around" in Calaveras and maybe a lot of people here just want to raise their families in a safe environment and work and pay bills, etc. as productive citizens and work in very PRODUCTIVE businesses and industry, etc. and these businesses, etc. have INTEGRITY. In other words to benefit for all for the GOOD! Our county doesn't need any tweakers or any other druggies. I myself, don't even want to hear about any drugs, see or smell them! And as I have said before I have 3 dogs and an equalizer so no one dares to come around my place and try to rip me off. Down with meth and down with pot! Down with all illicit drugs! So folks you can smoke smoke your weed in your own homes and grow your little plants as long as you don't infringe or encroach with my lifestyle! Thank you

          Did you know that prolly is now the accepted substitute word for "probably?" I think the younger generation started this all as an accepted subsitute. I can't see it as an abbreviated form since probably doesn't have 2 "l's" As for "edumacation" I'll have you know that I have had a good education and also street wise education. Experience comes with age and believe me I have had a lot of experience in the world of ALL illicit drugs. Thank you

      We don’t hear about meth busts in Calaveras County because there’s no money in them. Pot busts are funded by former growers- still. Meth busts do not get state reimbursement like they used too. At least that’s what environmental health told me.

        And there will always be pot busts-grower funded or not grower funded. When people break the law (in excess of 6 plants) then that's when the LE's take action. The law also states that one can only carry 28 grams or less on their person or in their car. Otherwise they are doing illegal transporting for sales. That is the law. So folks can do anything they want in their own homes-smoke it and/or raise cannabis and as long as it doesn't exceed the 6 plants per adult. We need to keep the ban and MAGA! That includes Calaveras-it'll get better around here!

          PS You were misinformed by whoever told you that at environmental health.
