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.
