On September 3, 2020, officers with the Redding Neighborhood Police Unit and Patrol Operations served a search warrant in the 1900 block of Cameo Court.
During the search warrant service, several subjects were contacted inside of the residence to include Ashley Peterson, 30 years of Redding.
During the search, officers located over 1/2 ounce of methamphetamine, packaging material, and drug paraphernalia. Peterson was arrested and later booked into the Shasta County Jail for possession of methamphetamine for sale, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
This is the fifth time this residence has been investigated for illegal sales of drugs. In February of 2019, the Neighborhood Police Unit investigated the location after receiving complaints about ongoing drug sales. A search warrant was served, and two individuals were located inside the residence. During a search, methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia were located, and two subjects were arrested for various drug-related charges.
In October of 2019, the Neighborhood Police Unit responded to the location and conducted a probation search, after again receiving complaints regarding drug sales. During that search, drug paraphernalia was located inside, and a subject was arrested for a drug-related offense.
In February of 2020, officers responded to the location to investigate additional complaints of drug sales. While at the location, officers located methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. One person was arrested for sales of methamphetamine, maintaining a residence where drugs are being sold, and child endangerment.
In August of 2020, the Neighborhood Police Unit investigated the location after receiving complaints regarding ongoing drug sales. A search warrant was served, and several subjects were located inside of the residence. During a search, officers located over 3 ounces of methamphetamine, scales, and packaging material. At that time, Ashley Peterson was arrested and booked into the Shasta County Jail for sales of methamphetamine.
The Redding Police Department will continue to work with the Shasta County District Attorney’s Office to ensure these drug dealers are held accountable.
The Neighborhood Police Unit would like to thanks the Community for their ongoing support and assistance in this investigation.
