Undercover operation results in one arrest
Aug. 30, 2013 — A undercover drug operation at the Diamond Mountain Casino resulted in the arrest of a Susanville man.
On Friday, Aug. 23, Chet Lowry, 33, was booked into the Lassen County Jail on alleged charges of possession of and sale of methamphetamine.
The Lassen County Narcotics Task Force in cooperation with the Department of Justice Bureau of Gambling Control conducted the undercover job during two weeks in August, according to task force sergeant Kevin Jones.
That Friday, two department of justice agents, dressed in plain clothes, were at the casino and at 10:15 p.m. Lowry allegedly offered to sell them methamphetamine, according to Jones.
He said a transaction allegedly occurred in the Casino and Lowry was later arrested by task force and department of justice agents.
The casino cooperated in the investigation, according to Jones, and he also commended them on doing a good job of keeping the place clean.
He said some people contacted during the operation said they could sell the drugs, but they would not do it at the casino.
