On the other hand, a different line of offenses was much like other weekly reports. There were a number of arrests in the last week involving controlled substances. A 29-year-old mechanic from Lancaster, a 25-year-old Newhall man who works in shipping and a 39-year-old who also works in shipping/receiving were booked for possession of a controlled substance. There was also a 31-year-old unemployed Newhall man and a 22-year-old unemployed woman from Thousand Oaks charged with possession earlier this week.
A 20-year-old inspector and a 27-year-old disabled man, both from Newhall, were arrested for possession of concentrated cannabis. A 22-year-old unemployed Thousand Oaks woman was picked up for possession of a device/instrument/paraphernalia, and a 29-year-old Canyon Country man was charged with the manufacture of a controlled substance.
A 24-year-old student from Canyon Country was picked up for possession of marijuana for sale. An unemployed 31-year-old and a 23-year-old bartender, both from Canyon Country, were picked up for possession of a controlled substance for sale, and several residents were charged with transporting/selling/furnishing marijuana, including a 22-year-old gardener from Tulare, Calif., a 21-year-old male babysitter from Visalia, Calif. and an 18-year-old student from Saugus.

A 29-year-old unemployed homeless man and also a 20-year-old unemployed Canyon Country man were brought in on charges of burglary.
A few of our residents were brought in for more violent charges. In apparently separate charges, a 53-year-old lighting tech from Lancaster, and two unemployed Canyon Country men, one 30 years old and the other, age 51, were arrested for corporal injury on a spouse/cohabitant.
An unemployed 45-year-old man from Canyon Country was charged with causing harm to an elder/dependant adult.

Also, an 18-year-old Simi Valley man, whose occupation is listed as â€œhostess,â€ was charged with drawing/exhibiting imitation of a firearm.
