Two separate investigations led to the arrests of Daniel White, of Susanville, and Robert Gomez, also of Susanville, for allegedly possessing meth for sale.
At 8:10 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 22, Lassen County Sheriff’s Deputies stopped a vehicle in the 300 block of North Fairfield Avenue in Susanville.
During a search of the vehicle, the deputies discovered approximately 10 grams of suspected meth packaged for sale prompting a call to the task force to assist with the investigation.
White was booked into the Lassen County Jail and as of Friday, Aug. 25 was being held on $75,000 bail.
The task force later served a search warrant at White’s residence in Susanville and found evidence to suggest White has been involved in controlled-substance sales.
At 10:30 p.m. the task force assisted the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation Parole with a parole search at a residence in Susanville.
During the search of the residence, task force agents located suspected meth for sale.
Gomez was arrested and booked into the jail on $15,000 bond.
The Aug. 22 incidents were the second and third arrests made within a week by the task force surrounding the sales of meth.
On Aug. 15 at about 2:15 a.m. deputies stopped a vehicle driven by Timothy Kuhlman, 45, of Chester, Calif., on the 1800 block of Main Street in Susanville at a local gas station.
During a search of the vehicle, deputies allegedly discovered approximately 51.5 grams of suspected methamphetamine packaged for sales with a street value of approximately $5,200. Deputies also discovered more than $800 in cash.
Deputies contacted the Lassen County Narcotics Task Force, which arrived on scene to assist with the investigation.
The investigation led to the arrest of Kuhlman who was booked at the Lassen County Adult Detention Facility on $20,000 bail, he was released later that day.
Kuhlman was released from the jail. However around 1:03 p.m. he was arrested in Plumas County in Highway 36, approximately two miles west of Highway 39 and was booked into the Plumas County Jail for possession of a firearm.
The Plumas County Sheriff’s Office later served a search warrant at Kuhlman’s residence in Chester. PSO found several items during the search including weapons, cash and evidence of controlled substance sales.
During the search, PSO Sgt. Dean Canalia came out of a shed on Kuhlman’s property and said, “We have found what we suspect is a human skull on a shelf — we have a potential homicide scene here.”
He said as a part of the homicide investigation the “suspected human skull” would be sent to an anthropologist for identification and time dating.
