A mid-day probation search in a quiet upscale neighborhood resulted in the seizure of narcotics, paraphernalia, and two subjects from the house taken to jail on drug charges.

Oakdale Police Detective Rockford Anderson said police conducted a probation search of a residence on Vista Verano Court shortly before noon on Friday, May 8. When police made contact at the residence four subjects fled out a back window and were eventually detained by officers in the area.

When police swept through the house to secure it for the probation search, they found Michael Glennon, 35, hiding in a bedroom closet. Glennon was the subject on probation that the search was attributed to.

Police located methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia inside the residence and summoned police canine Cruz to continue the quest for additional contraband.

Anderson said Cruz “hit” on an area in the master bathroom of the house where officers later found additional methamphetamine concealed.

As a result of the search, police arrested Glennon for felony and misdemeanor warrants, violation of probation with drug charges and Keren Ambrosio, 31, for felony possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.

Both subjects were booked at Stanislaus County Jail.

Residents on Vista Verano Court applauded the police action stating the house has become a nuisance and caused blight to the generally quiet neighborhood due to the drug activity and subjects who frequent the home.
