South Lake Tahoe police have arrested two residents who are accused of furnishing marijuana to students at South Tahoe High School and South Tahoe Middle School.
William Anderson (left photo), 30, and his fiance, Makayla Hoe (right photo), 25, were taken into custody Monday after a school resource officer discovered information regarding adults selling marijuana to local students. He passed the information on to patrol officers.
Officers followed up with an investigation and learned that students were buying marijuana from someone named "Will," according to a Police Department news release. Further investigation led them to William Anderson on Marjorie Street. Officers served a search warrant at Anderson's residence, where they found marijuana, methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia, officials said.
Police said Anderson admitted to selling to students and Hoehn admitted knowing of Anderson's marijuana sales from their residence. Their two small children were removed from the home and placed in the custody of Child Protective Services due to unsafe living conditions at the residence, according to the news release.
Anderson was arrested on suspicion of selling marijuana to minors, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, maintaining a drug house and child endangerment. Hoehn was arrested on suspicion of maintaining a drug house and child endangerment.
Anyone with information regarding the case is asked to call School Resource Officer Aaron Crawford or investigating Officers Jake Herminghaus and Travis Cabral at the South Lake Tahoe Police Department, (530) 542-6100.
