Arrest at White Pines Lake

   According to the Calaveras Sheriff's Office, on November 6, 2020, a deputy stopped a car

near White Pines Lake for expired registration.

   Only a handwritten bill of sale was shown for the vehicle and a records check showed that the driver, Richard David Castillo (41) of Camp Connell, had two misdemeanor warrants and a felony warrant for his arrest in Calaveras County.

   Castillo was placed under arrest at the scene.  The passenger Amanda Ruth Harper (40) of Camp Connell was asked to exit the vehicle while deputies made a search.

   Two backpacks were located which contained methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia (syringes and needles).  They also found a loaded .22 caliber rifle with a cutoff stock and 37 rounds of live ammunition.

  Suspect Harper was issued a citation for alleged possession of drugs and paraphernalia and released at the scene.

   Castillo was booked into the Calaveras County Jail on $35,000 bail.
