Reported drug find leads to arrests at Citrus Heights house

From David Richie:

Citrus Heights police arrested three people Wednesday and took two children into protective custody during a probation search. The arrests occurred about 11:45 a.m. at a house in the 7000 block of Oak Spring Way, north of Antelope Road, between Interstate 80 and Rollingwood Boulevard.

Officers said they found approximately four ounces of suspected marijuana in plain sight and detected the strong odor of marijuana smoke throughout the house.

The children, a 4-year-old girl and 4-month-old boy, were also found during the search.

Officers arrested residents Christopher Michael Tolson, 31, and Stefani Lee Partin, 32, as well as a visitor, Jason Daniel Payton, 20, of Citrus Heights.

Tolson was booked Sacramento County Main Jail on suspicion of possessing marijuana for sale and felony child endangerment.

Partin was arrested on suspicion of child endangerment but released from custody later that day.

Payton was arrested on a misdemeanor warrant.
