Eight arrested in TPD operation on May 20

On May 20, 2014, an operation hosted by the Tehachapi Police Department was conducted in the Tehachapi area. With the assistance of the Taft Police Department and Kern County Probation Officers a total of eight arrests were made. Of those arrests five were for being under the influence of meth, one possession of meth, and two for warrants.
 
A total of eight parole searches and 21 Assembly Bill 109-related contacts were made. AB 109 is the Prison Realignment Act signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown in 2011.

The law sent low-level prison inmates who were considered non-violent, non-sexual, and non-serious back to counties for supervision in order to comply with a federal mandate to reduce state prison population.
 
All suspects arrested in the May 20 operation were booked into the Kern County Jail.
