4 arrested in cat-and-mouse drug bust in Grass Valley

A Grass Valley residence allegedly known for its drug activity was the site of four arrests this week.

Members of the Nevada County sheriff’s narcotics task force had the Victorian in the 200 block of Mill Street under surveillance Thursday afternoon due to “a lot of activity, a lot of traffic consistent with drug transactions,” said Sheriff Keith Royal.

A man allegedly was stationed outside on a mountain bike as a lookout, Royal said.



The man, identified as Thomas Michael Moret, 28, recognized one of the officers in a surveillance vehicle and “tried to beat feet,” Royal said. He was arrested after a foot chase and booked into county jail on suspicion of being under the influence of a controlled substance. He was released on $1,000 bail.

Tammie Angove, 28, a resident of the house, was arrested on suspicion of maintaining a place to sell controlled substances and committing a felony while on bail. She was released on $10,000 bail.




Wendy Nicole Poshmann, 19, who also uses the name Wendy Parker, was arrested on suspicion of being under the influence of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of controlled substances without a prescription. She was released on $2,750 bail.

Amy Lynn Stewart, 26, was arrested on suspicion of being under the influence of a controlled substance, booked and released on $1,000 bail.

James Payne, 28, was cited and released on suspicion of possessing a switchblade.
