A Tehama County couple has been arrested for the third time in only seven months.

In Cottonwood the Shasta Interagency Narcotic Task Force arrested 49-year old Nathan Hale and 35-year old Deann O'Banion after searching their home and finding drugs and $24,000 in cash violating their probation.

During the course of their history together the agency has found 4 1/2 pounds of meth, 1 1/2 pounds of heroin, two pistols and even more cash that was on the couple.

Hale and O'Banion have multiple felony convictions in Shasta and Tehama Counties.

Lightning-caused fires will be a concern over the next few days as thunderstorms are in the forecast. We stay warm to begin next week but cool into the 70s by Wednesday.
