REDDING, Calif. - Citizens helped Redding Police Officers make three arrests at the Mt. Shasta Mall for possession of meth with intent to sell.

Officers patrolling the Mt. Shasta Mall on Wednesday were flagged down by citizens who reported a suspicious car in the parking lot. Officers learned that the occupants had already been asked to leave by Mt. Shasta Mall security but had refused to do so.

The officers then spoke with the two people in the car, later identified as Johnny Gonzalez and Jeremy Patrick Brown. Brown admitted to officers that he was in possession of and had recently used meth. Gonzalez gave officers a false name, attempting to evade a felony arrest warrant. As officers continued to investigate, both Gonzalez and Brown became confrontational and were eventually detained.

A woman associated with Gonzalez and Brown then came out of Macy’s and began asking why the men were detained. As officers spoke to the woman, later identified as Annette Alene Hutchins, they noticed she appeared to be under the influence and was detained as well.

Officers searched the three people along with their car. Inside the vehicle officers located 19 grams of meth and related drug paraphernalia, illegally possessed prescription medication and a fake gun.

Gonzalez, Brown and Hutchins were arrested for possession of meth intended for sale. Gonzalez was also charged with obstructing an officer and providing false information. All three were booked into the Shasta County Jail.

The Redding Police Department also adds that they would like to thank citizens for reporting the suspicious activity, they say the city's extra eyes and ears greatly assist us in apprehending criminals.
