A couple from California gave themselves away in the parking lot of a downtown casino over the weekend. Carson City Sheriff’s Deputies watched some suspicious activities by a man and a woman right outside the casino. It appeared that the two were under the influence of drugs. The deputies closed in and confronted the two. After surveying the situation the two suspects allowed the deputies to search their car. And the deputies suspicions were dead-on. The car was full of drugs. Deputies suspected the two were both active distributors and that’s how they made money.
Both were arrested and taken to jail. Deputies ran record reports on both Padilla and Salmon. They discovered that Padilla has numerous arrest warrants out on him in California. Deputies also arrested Salmon as a participant in their illicit operations. Deputies also learned that Salmon had three young children – but Child Protective Services took them away from her and found them suitable homes.
Carson City Jail
It’s one of those sad, sad stories about how too many American families are caught at the bottom of the economic totem pole and they turn to illegal drugs.
Carson City Sheriff’s Deputies report that a couple from Dayton were pulled over near College Parkway and Roop. Their vehicle had expired temporary license plates. When deputies pulled Christina and Jaime Leon over deputies knew that they were looking at another tragic family on wheels. In addition to mom and dad in the front seat, there were three children in the back ranging in age from 2 to 13. Two of them were not secured in a safety seat.
Deputies say they discovered rotten food inside the car, along with mold growing on it. Dirty diapers from the two year old were scattered about. Spoiled milk in a bottle – some of it possibly baby formula. Trash, water bottles and clothing were also strewn about the back seat area. There were unsecured tools inside the passenger area which, deputies say could have become deadly projectiles for mom, dad and the kids should they get into a traffic crash. Deputies say the younger of the three children wore dirty clothes and looked like they hadn’t taken a bath in a while.
Deputies continued the car search and they quickly found methamphetamine that was concealed inside a phone wallet.
Deputies contacted Child Protective Services and summoned personnel to the scene. After surveying the situation all three children were taken in to protective custody. Parents Jaime and Christina Leon were cuffed and transported to the Carson City Jail. Deputies say they were booked on charges of Child Neglect, Child Endangerment, Possession of Methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.
A young man and woman were very lucky they weren’t killed Saturday night. Had the river been in a Spring surge it could have become tragic.
9:24pm Report of a car plunging into the the Carson River near Lloyds Bridge, landing upside down in the river. Both occupants are out of the car, but there are injuries. Care Flight was put on stand-by.
10:00 pm Injuries to both man and woman occupants were judged to be enough to get them checked out at Carson-Tahoe RMC.
It appeared that the car had turned off of Pinion Hills Road and south onto Sierra Vista Lane that follows the river toward the south. Reports at the scene indicate the car was going too fast to navigate a sharp curve to the left causing the car to lose control and roll down a very steep bank, landing upside down out in the river just downstream from Lloyds Bridge. Both the man and woman managed to crawl out of the vehicle. Both were checked out inside a Carson City Fire-Rescue Ambulance for a quick trip to the hospital.
Two very lucky young people. Their names were not immediately released.
