Two arrested for selling drugs, stolen property in North San Juan

In the culmination of a six-month long undercover investigation, the bartender and a patron at the Brass Rail Tavern in North San Juan were arrested Wednesday night for selling drugs and dealing in stolen property.

Bartender Mary Jane Mang of Camptonville and carpenter James A. Foster of North San Juan were arrested at the bar Wednesday night after officers from the Alcoholic Beverage Control made one last marijuana buy in a series of several drug deals, said Nevada County Sheriff’s Narcotic Task Force Sgt. Bill Evans.

The pair had reportedly been accepting stolen cigarettes and liquor, re-selling them and selling marijuana to undercover agents for several months.



Mang was arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance, selling a controlled substance and receiving stolen property.

Foster was arrested on selling a controlled substance and receiving stolen property.




Bail for Mang and Foster was set at $10,000 each.
