Drug Arrests Lead To Lab Discovery

The arrest of two Valley Springs men on narcotics charges has lead to the discovery of two drug labs.

Calaveras County Sheriffs investigators say 25-year-old Bradon Sturgill was taken into custody on a warrant. During the arrest, deputies found 10 grams of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia on him.

Deputies report 29-year-old John Westfall, who was with Sturgill at the Village Mart Texaco in La Contenta, was arrested for possession of a loaded firearm and narcotics for sale, among other charges.

A search warrant of the men´s two residences led to the discovery of a hashish lab at Sturgills home and a meth lab in a 5th wheel trailer at Westhills residence.

Law officials say more arrests are expected in the case.
