Two arrested at illegal campsite

Nevada City Police officers arrested a man and a woman on a number of charges after being found at a campsite behind Juvenile Hall.

Antoinette Lee Brantley and Patrick Gary Carter were found at the illegal campsite Wednesday, said Nevada City Police Officer Scott Goin.

The officer who located the two knew both had outstanding warrants, and took them into custody, Goin said.

A search of Carter, 28, reportedly uncovered about two grams of methamphetamine in his pocket.

He was booked into county jail on suspicion of possessing a controlled substance and the warrants, and was being held without bail.

Brantley, 29, was arrested on five outstanding misdemeanor warrants and was being held without bail.
