Homeless Residents Arrested In Temecula On Suspicion Of Selling Meth

The arrests came as the Temecula Police Department's Problem Oriented Policing Team visited a homeless encampment in the 29800 block of Ynez Road.

Two people living in tents on Ynez Road are behind bars for allegedly selling and using methamphetamine.

Terrell Blomquist, 29, and Renee Sutterfield, 31, were both arrested Wednesday morning on suspicion of possession of methamphetamine for sale and for being under the influence of a controlled substance, according to a report from Sgt. Geoff Green of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

Sutterfield was on probation for narcotics offenses, so she was also booked on suspicion of probation violation, Green said.

The arrests came as the Temecula Police Department's Problem Oriented Policing Team visited a homeless encampment in the 29800 block of Ynez Road. Deputies were conducting a follow-up investigation into recent burglaries, according to Green.

“Officers learned that Sutterfield was on probation for narcotic offenses. A probation search was done on the camping tent they were living in. They found 7.0 grams of meth, a smoking pipe and other paraphernalia used for selling narcotics was found. Officers determined she was under the influence of a controlled substance,” Green reported.

I agree with your posting Kh, and thanks for stating something positive about a human being that many will look down upon and condemn, and those who condemn are lower than the condemned in the eyes of god. I wish them both well in their journeys.

Many people who are actually clinically diagnosed with mental illnesses "self medicate" in order to survive. If people would only educate themselves instead of judging in ignorance, what a wonderful world this could be!

LInda Sorry to hear that you might be leaving the message board here. You have a very nice style of writing and articulate your thoughts very well. I too have been sensored. I don't know why and don't really care. I seldom access this message board without reading some hate filled swill coming from someone. Often times wrapped in a religious cloak and attributed to God's will. It's very sad to see this manifest itself in our community. But, as they say, it is what it is. I hope that you reconsider leaving the site. I would hate to see a quality 'voice' go silent. All the best!

Thank you Joseph, I appreciate that. I just had 8 messages bounced back to me from the Patch here, not ONE of them violated their policies and when I asked WHY they were returned - silence. I can't belong to a group that professes "freedom of speech" but suppresses those whose view THEY disagree with. That is NOT freedom of speech, that is tyranny, and is unacceptable. This world is rapidly deteriorating, there are no more morals, no more people who stand up for whats right, who believe that we ALL are equal, I'm just really fed up with not only fighting idiots posts on here but then to have to fight the "editors" here, its not worth my time anymore. I appreciate your kind words though! ;) I am "spearheading" an event at the Temecula City Hall tomorrow night and would love to have any and all join me. Its FOR Larry Robinson, the nice man who was murdered while working at the music store two weeks ago here in town. I"ve been to a vigil, and a fundraiser/tribute to him, but tomorrow night at 7pm, in front of the city council member, I am proposing that they now offer a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the killer(s) of Larry. I believe its the only way they are going to catch the swine at this point, scum will always hang out with other scum, and would sell their mother for $50. Hope you can come Joseph.
