Two arrested on drug charges in store parking lot

Local police officers arrested a Grass Valley woman and Marysville man on alleged drug charges Friday morning, after receiving reports that the two individuals were suspiciously sitting inside a car parked in the Grass Valley Dollar Store parking lot, and possibly dead.

Once Grass Valley police made contact with them, though, the duo were found in possession of methamphetamines, heroin, and drug paraphernalia; both were suspected of being under the influence of a controlled substance.

“They were slumped over and unresponsive,” Grass Valley police Cpl. Brian Hooper said. “It took a while to get them to respond.”

GVPD received a call around 8 a.m. Friday of a suspicious and potentially deceased man and woman inside a car parked at the Dollar Store located on the 1100 block of Sutton Way.

According to Hooper, officers responded to the scene and attempted to speak with the woman, Emily Bader, who was seated in the driver’s seat of the vehicle. When Bader, 24, did not respond, an officer opened the driver’s side door.

“The officer then observed Bader crumple up some tin foil to conceal it,” said Hooper.

Another officer attempted to contact the man, Tanner McCann, who was seated in the front passenger seat next to Bader, and was observed to be slumped over and holding a glass pipe in his left hand.

When the officer made contact with McCann, 24, he was seen dropping the pipe to the floorboard of the car.

Officers found McCann in possession of two amphetamine pills, and a suspected amount of .13 grams of heroin and .16 grams of methamphetamines, said Hooper.

In addition to the pipe with burnt methamphetamine residue in it, Bader was also found with .08 grams of heroin.

Hooper said when Bader was arrested she waived her rights and admitted to officers that she had used heroin and smoked methamphetamine two hours prior to officers contacting them.

Bader and McCann have since been released from custody and are charged with being under the influence of a controlled substance, and possession of a controlled substance, narcotic and drug paraphernalia.
