by Placerville Newswire / Feb 29, 2016 / comments

Here's another example of how drugs can affect our community. 

These are hundreds of empty butane canisters, used in the manufacture of Butane Honey Oil (a form of concentrated cannibis). 

They were dumped and set on fire near a stream in the southern part of the county. 

Drugs not only harm our residents, but can also damage the environment. 

Luckily, Cal Fire was able to contain and extinguish the fire before it spread to the surrounding area.

February 27th, The Sheriff’s Office received a call regarding a juvenile who ran away from a group home in El Dorado. 

The responding Deputies started a foot search for the young man in the rural area. Deputies located the boy approximately one mile away, frustrated and depressed but in good health. 
Calls for service were beginning to backup and we needed the Deputies back on the road. Nonetheless, they recognized that the boy needed someone who was willing to listen for a while. Rather than returning the boy by vehicle the Deputies chose to walk him home.
