Husband And Wife Arrested In Drug Bust

Sonora, CA — The Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office is hoping that a major drug bust Tuesday in the 19000 block of Callahan Dr. near Sonora will put a dent in the availability of methamphetamine locally.

Deputy Paul Tualla say $20,000 worth of methamphetamine and $1,000 worth of marijuana was pulled from the home of husband and wife, Lisa and David Barton.
