The Colusa County Sheriff’s Office arrested three county jail inmates on drug charges after deputies said they found methamphetamine in their shared cell.
Nicholas George Corbin, 33, of Maxwell, Aaron Michael Dearman, 34, of Stonyford, and Travis Lovell Weatherly, 27, of Arbuckle, were charged after the jail was searched on Sept. 2, when officers say they found approximately nine grams of methamphetamine in a cell shared by the three men. Sgt. Michael Bradwell said that it is unclear how the drugs made it into the jail.
“Obviously, this is still an ongoing investigation,” Bradwell said. “It’s unknown at this time how it got into the facility. This is something that occasionally happens that we take very seriously, and it is definitely something we’ve been working diligently to combat. If anyone has any information related to this investigation, they can contact the Colusa County Sheriff’s Office.”
Weatherly was previously booked into the Colusa County Jail on Aug. 27, after he was ordered by the Colusa County Superior Court to surrender himself for allegedly violating the terms of his probation. Corbin was originally booked into the Colusa County jail on Aug. 19, after being arrested on a warrant for allegedly violating his probation, and for possession of a controlled substance. Dearman arrived at the Colusa County Jail on Aug. 13, when he was held on a Colusa County warrant for possession of a controlled substance.
All three men are accused of being under the influence of a controlled substance and possession of contraband in a jail. Bail for the new charges was set at $20,000 for each of the three men.
