Grass Valley man arrested twice in one day

A Grass Valley man ended up in jail twice Saturday — first in connection with an assault, and then on drug charges.

Grass Valley Police officers responded to a call regarding a disturbance in the 600 block of Packard Drive at about 11:30 a.m., said Sgt. Dan Kimbrough.

The caller reported that Cody Robert-David Kinderman, 23, was inside a residence, possibly under the influence of drugs, and was violent and damaging items.

Officers arrived to find Tiffany Lyn Sommer, 20, outside, and Kinderman inside the residence. Both were given field tests and determined to be under the influence of methamphetamine and possibly heroin, Kimbrough said.

Sommer and Kinderman were booked into county jail on suspicion of being under the influence of a controlled substance and released on $2,500 bail.

Officers were called back out to the residence at about 6:45 p.m. for a report of a verbal dispute, Kimbrough said. They arrived to find Kinderman there with his sister.

Kinderman was “highly agitated,” and reportedly was found with items in his vehicle linked to the manufacture of butane honey oil, including marijuana, a propane tank and a torch attachment, and glass dishes.

He was arrested on suspicion of possessing drug paraphernalia and manufacturing a controlled substance, and was being held in lieu of $37,000 bail.
