REDDING, Calif. - Redding police busted a suspected drug home following complaints from neighbors in the area.

The police department had been receiving complaints from neighbors about the suspected drug home on the 3700 block of Riverview Drive since February. 

Many of the complains involved suspected drug use, traffic coming at all hours of the night, and an increase in criminal activity and theft in the neighborhood. 

Officers were conducting surveillance of the home on Thursday when they saw a car arrive, stay for a short time, and then leave again. The officer conducted a traffic stop and contacted Kimberly Rose Wilcox, 30, who is known to law enforcement due to criminal history. 

She has been arrested eight times in Shasta County and is currently on a Supervised Own Recognizance program, where she was arrested for the crime but released until her next court date instead of staying in custody. However, conditions of the program include obeying the law, not possessing narcotics or paraphernalia, and being subject to warrantless search. 

The officer learned that Wilcox was living in the master bedroom of the suspected drug home with her boyfriend Gregory Gabriel Johnson, 22. 

During a search of the room, officers found methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. 

Wilcox was taken into custody for possession of narcotics, possession of drug paraphernalia, and violation of SOR. Johnson was arrested for possession of narcotics and possession of drug paraphernalia. 

Officers discovered two other tenants in the house, Charles Michael Nelson, 55, and Sandra Marie Moyer. 22. had warrants for their arrest. Both were issued citations and released from the scene. 

During the investigation, officers also found that the home had various code violations including no electricity or running water. the City of Redding Code Enforcement responded and found the house to be uninhabitable. The house was tagged and all living in it were told they couldn't live there until the violations were fixed.
