Two men, 46 years apart in age, were arrested at a Twin Peaks residence on Feb. 3 when two sheriff's deputies, conducting a probation check, reportedly found drugs and evidence of drug sales in a safe.
Deputies Kevin Fries and Ron Miller went to the house, in the 26000 block of Boulder Lane, to see whether the 46-year-old live-in girlfriend of Everette Andrew Lofton, who is 70 years old, was complying with the terms of her probation.
Instead, in the bedroom the unidentified woman shared with Lofton, deputies found a safe that reportedly contained eight grams of methamphetamine, seven grams of marijuana, plastic baggies, drug scales and pay/owe sheets.
Lofton was arrested and booked for possession of a controlled substance for sale. Jail records indicate he was later released from custody pending the filing of charges against him, which had not happened as of Wednesday.
Also living at the home, Fries and Miller said, was 24-year-old Michael Keith Wilson, who had two outstanding arrest warrants. One was for $25,000 for possession of dangerous drugs, while the other, for $100,000, was for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Wilson was booked at West Valley Detention Center, where he remained in custody Tuesday on three bail amounts totaling $300,000. Court records show Wilson was due before a judge on Wednesday on four separate drug cases.
According to court records, Wilson was placed on probation following his arrest last Nov. 12 for drug possession. He was arrested again, 18 days later, also for drug possession.
In the latter arrest, he pleaded not guilty Monday and has a preliminary hearing scheduled for Feb. 17. He was also scheduled for a probation-revocation hearing on Wednesday in connection with the Nov. 12 arrest.
