A Motorcycle Theft Leads To Drug Bust

Calaveras Sheriff’s deputies and CHP served the warrant at a home in the 8000 block of Westhill Road in Valley Springs last Friday.

Deputies arrested Jacob Ryan Butler (27) of Valley Springs and Shannon Kay Clougherty (25) of Valley Springs. Sheriff’s Officials say Clougherty’s three year old child was also at the house.
