San Andreas, CA.. On July 27, 2012 at 7:30 A.M.investigators from the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office conducted a probation compliance check on Eric Gabriel Sosa (34) of San Andreas at a residence on the 300 block of Russell Road in San Andreas.

At the time of the contact the above persons were located at the residence. During the investigators’ subsequent compliance search they located a combined total of over one ounce of methamphetamine and associated paraphernalia consistent with drug sales. The methamphetamine was found both on Suspect Sosa’s person and in his living quarters.

Additionally, Suspect Sosa was carrying a smoking pipe commonly used to smoke methamphetamine. Furthermore, at the time of Suspect Sosa’s jail booking additional methamphetamine, along with prescription narcotic pills were found hidden on his body. He did not have a prescription to possess the pills.
