Pair Arrested after Attempting to Sell Drugs to Children on Playground

Last updated on Wednesday, May 23, 2018

(CLOVERDALE) - Cloverdale Police arrested two people who they say were attempting to sell drugs to children on a playground in Stardust Hills neighborhood.

Police were called to the park on Monday around 5 p.m. after a report that 18-year-old Erica Souders and 20-year-old Drake Best tried getting children to buy marijuana and pills from them. The two supposedly told the kids the drugs would 'make them feel good.'

Police say when they confronted the two, Best handed over a bag of pills and a bottle of marijuana fell out of Sounder's pants.

"As sad as it is, when asked about it he said he was just out here trying to make money, that's all his reasoning was for it. (It's a) pretty poor excuse, especially when it comes to getting children involved in this, it's definitely no joke," said Deputy Marshal Levi Att with the Cloverdale Police Department.

Souders and Best are both facing drug possession and dealing charges.
