Five arrested for roles in prescription drug ring
Jim Adams was detained and remains in federal custody at the Sacramento County Jail and Tricia Adams' detention hearing was set for Wednesday, Sept. 2.
Investigators and police officers from the Sierra Army Depot initially brought this matter to the attention of federal authorities after determining that a few employees at the base were operating a drug ring. Of those arrested, Lahr, Walker and Tricia Adams are current employees at the Sierra Army Depot and Jim Adams is a former employee.
The investigation has revealed that Jim and Tricia Adams are allegedly at the center of an illegal prescription drug ring operated out of the local area. On numerous occasions law enforcement authorities coordinated the undercover purchase of illegal prescription drugs directly from Jim Adams. Investigators have determined that Jim Adams’ wife, Tricia Adams, is the main supplier of the prescription drugs.
Both Jim and Tricia Adams have been charged federally with the illegal sale of Schedule II prescription narcotics consisting primarily of oxycontin, percocet and hydrocodone.
Goodman, Lahr and Walker were all arrested on state charges. In addition to the arrests, law enforcement authorities also conducted seven search warrants at locations associated with the individuals who were arrested.
The service of the seven search warrants and five arrest warrants were conducted by approximately 75 law enforcement officers.
Participating agencies included the FBI, Agents of the Lassen County Narcotics Task Force, members of the Lassen Interagency SWAT Team, Deputies from the Lassen County Sheriff’s Office, Officers from the Susanville Police Department, Officers from the California Highway Patrol, and Deputies from the Plumas County Sheriff’s Office, and the Lassen County District Attorney’s Office.
