Two Temecula Residents Arrested For Child Endangerment, Drugs

The arrests were part of an ongoing narcotics investigation, according to Sgt. Chris Gaskins of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

After a search warrant was served Thursday in Temecula, two people were arrested.

As part of an ongoing narcotics investigation, the warrant was served in the 45000 block of Camino Rubi at approximated 4 p.m. by the Temecula Police Department's Special Enforcement Team along with the Temecula Police Department's Problem Oriented Policing Team, according to a report from Sgt. Chris Gaskins of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

“During the search of the residence, approximately a quarter ounce of methamphetamine and various prescription pills were located. Three minor children were located at the residence and with the assistance of the Drug Endangered Children team, they were placed into protective custody,” the sergeant reported.

The following individuals were arrested, according to Gaskins:

Matthew Moody, 38, of Temecula, for possession for sales of a controlled substance, felony child endangerment, and under the influence of a controlled substance.

Priscilla Pounds, 35, of Temecula, for felony child endangerment and under the influence of a controlled substance.

Jesús isnt dead . Jesús is alive. And guess what...i hope you realize that before the end of your time
Galactic Cannibal December 08, 2012 at 08:04 PM
Hey Dudette, I would like to meet Jesus if as you say, he is alive . Does he stay in your house and what brand of beer does he drink. I am regular beer (ale) drinker and would be happy to share a pint with Jesus. We could get shit-faced together. But not with Mohammad, who according to history notes, he was a pedophile. And as for Buddha another no, he always looks too fat in photos of him. But I liked his smiley face. Have a tranquil day .... Dudette.

Don't knock this woman or her love of her children. It easy to sit here and laugh and judge all day . I know this family good people sometimes get Into bad places .... If you don't know the dangers of this drug it affects the poor to the wealthy . Prayers to her and the kids and vengeance against the slime bag that introduced it to her.... Wasn't for the money she is set for life .... It was her birthday the night the police came through the door with house decorated for the holidays Not a bad person just another victim of a evil drug

Mike this young woman looks like she has, or is losing all her natural beauty. But before some creep got her hooked on these evil drugs , I would say she was a terrific looking young woman and intelligent . Tens of thousands of good people get hooked , and mostly they are introduced to these evil synthetic drugs by low life bottom feeders. Pretty damn sad.

oh, a threat from some simpleton. Jesus IS dead, PROVE HE ISN'T. That's what I thought.
Greg Seth December 09, 2012 at 04:15 AM
oh, ok BRO. Live a life accomplishing nothing and keeping people stupid, while...what? You wait to see if your imaginary myth holds water?
Greg Seth December 09, 2012 at 04:16 AM
mot to mention that this is Temecula. This happens every day by the HUNDREDS.
Greg Seth December 09, 2012 at 04:17 AM
Yeah sorry, your imaginary myth means nothing. Try education and drug counseling. Or maybe not living in a white trash shithole like TEMECULA. Jesus would teach hate, intolerance, oh wait... that's Christians. Jesus was a nice guy that died and was never proven to exist in the first place. Prove me wrong, and no... your book of fairy tales doesn't count.
Greg Seth December 09, 2012 at 04:23 AM
Are you serious? We're talking meth and pills. Go cry me a river, they need to be sterilized and euthanized. WHite trash. It's easy to laugh and judge when I know how to raise children and be a responsible, non drug-addicted adult. Victim my ass.
Greg Seth December 09, 2012 at 04:24 AM
So... she's not a lowlife bottom feeder? WHen her children are addicts and strippers, will SHE be the lowlife?

Kylie December 09, 2012 at 07:30 AM
I was really close to the family as well, mostly Kels. whenever her and mom were not agreeing she would come to my house and talk and she knew my family and me were always there for her. knowing monday is her last day at school im not ready. i cant believe matt and the things he has brought into that family. i love them so much. ive been crying since school got out yesterday. oh and to all you people hating on this family you can go shut up. you dont know them you only know the story. you have no place to say anything.
Joe Laskoski December 09, 2012 at 02:24 PM
Meth is a killer of the soul. It's so hard for users to stop once they start. I hope this is a major wake up call for these parents. I'm sure the children are relieved their parents are locked up. Hopefully this helps break the pattern the parents are in and the learn how to live a sober life. It's so sad but there is help in N A...get started it's a better way if anyone need help.
Mike December 09, 2012 at 05:17 PM
Heh Greg are you one of those arm chair haters that know everything??... You know how to raise a family??? You sound uneducated at the hate your spewing ??? Dr's lawyers, top buissnes executives also fall to thisdrug ! Or do you read newspapers? Let me guess you drive a truck ,.. Lifted truck? Own more than 1 dog.. Claim to be a Christian yet spew hate and judge others , dislike Jews and too stupid to realize Jesus was Jewish.... Eat red meat at every meal have a 40+ waste line .... The family you raised will come in contact with this drug eventually no how many times you beat your kids ... Grand kids even?... so get off your high tower bs judgement rant and go read if you can?

Find out more about problem oriented policing at http://improvingpolice.wordpress.com/ where other current police improvement issues are discussed. The kind of policing I talk about is accomplished by men and women who are well-trained and led, restrained in their use of force, honest, and courteous to every person.

People, don't encourage the looney posters. Funny when they fail to instigate a reaction they use their second or third patch account to praise their prior post. What a lonely pathetic existence.
Tamara December 11, 2012 at 06:11 AM
Unfortunately Pricilla was sucked into Matt's bullshit! She IS a good mom...however, her addiction was too strong to overcome... I know for a fact she loves her children very much!!! Did she screw up? YES!!! But it doesn't mean she is a lowlife who doesn't love her girls!!! DON'T JUDGE!!! Instead pray for the girls who are thrown into this horrible ordeal... AND NO THEY WON'T BE ADDICTS OR STRIPPERS!!! I love you K, K & K Stay strong girls love you
Priscilla December 11, 2012 at 06:19 PM
Thank you to my true friends for all the positive support! In the hardest and lowest of times you really do find out who your true friends are.....that would be the people that love and support you in the good and bad times. Xoxo (JUST SAYING!)
KJO December 11, 2012 at 09:15 PM
Yeah, No one is EXEMPT from drug addiction or alcoholism, Everyone who has been negative in this post has someone in their family with some sort of addiction~~~Don't be so quick to judge others and come up with your own conclusion of what YOU THINK is going on, until you've walked in someones shoes you have NO IDEA...My prayers are with The family in hopes that they get the help they need.
