While officers were searching the home, Rogers drove by the residence, saw the officers on scene, and continued driving away. Officers were able to conduct a traffic stop and detain Rogers nearby. Rogers was found with several baggies of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia on her person.
Based on the deplorable living conditions coupled with the drugs inside the home, the children were placed in the protective custody of CFS. City of Anderson Code Enforcement personnel were also called out to the residence to conduct a building safety inspection.
Officers contacted the mother of the children, 40 year old Tricia Ann McCoshum of Anderson, at her place of employment. McCoshum and Rogers were subsequently arrested and booked into the Shasta County Jail for felony charges of maintaining a residence for the purpose of using drugs, possession of drugs for sale, and felony child abuse.
