Sonora, CA – A second raid at a Sonora property uncovers hundreds of pills and lands a man, already on bail accused of attempting to smuggle drugs into Tuolumne County Jail, back behind bars.
30-year-old Fabian Ramirez was arrested at a home on Elm Street yesterday morning when Tuolumne County Narcotics Team and sheriff’s investigators moved in to serve a High Risk Probation Team search warrant. Detectives discovered aluminum trays containing over 650 pills, methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and ammunition at the residence.
This is arrest number two for Ramirez at this address. As reported here, it was the scene of a drug bust back in June when sheriff’s officials say he ran from the property but was easily detected due to an ankle monitor he was wearing and arrested at a nearby shopping center.
In regards to this latest arrest, Ramirez faces several more felony charges including drug sales, maintaining a drug house and committing a felony while out on bail.
