REDDING, Calif. - Three were arrested after the Redding Neighborhood Police Unit found them in possession of two pounds of meth.

On Jan. 3, the NPU was patrolling the areas of Starthmore Drive and Caitlin Drive in Redding when they saw a man run in to what was known by the department as a "problem residence."

Prior to running in the home, he was standing next to a car that was occupied by Tisha Susann Williams, 38, of Sacramento, who they learned was on felony probation for illegal possession of a firearm. They subsequently searched the car she was standing next to and found two pounds of methamphetamine. 

At this time, police believed that the people inside the residence may also be involved in the narcotic activity. They called for the people to come out of the house and they came into contact with Robert Gregory Tabarez, 36, of Sacramento, and Ou Saechao, 37, who were detained without incident. 

Officers said that Saechao had been arrested 15 times previously in Shasta County for multiple crimes including narcotic sales and illegal weapon possession. 

Officers obtained a search warrant and entered the residence where they found ammunition, which Saechao is prohibited from possessing due to prior felony convictions. 

Tabarez and Williams were arrested and booked into the Shasta County Jail for possession of methamphetamine for sales and conspiracy.

Tabarez was also booked on three active arrest warrants from Shasta, Sonoma, and Mendocino counties. 

Additionally, Saechao was arrested and booked into jail for being a convicted felon in possession of ammunition.
