Narcotics Task Force members arrested two women Tuesday on drug charges during a probation sweep, said Nevada County Sheriff’s Lt. Steve Tripp.

Sheriff’s deputies were assisting the county’s probation department in conducting probation searches, to ensure people in the county are complying with their probation terms. Tripp said.
