SUISUN CITY — Two people were arrested this week during a check of registered sex offenders. Neither is a registered sex offender.
The Solano County Sheriff’s Office Investigations Bureau and the Solano County Probation Department made the arrests Wednesday while conducting routine compliance checks on registered sex offenders.
All of the sex registrants checked during the sweep were found to be in compliance of their terms, according to a press release from the Sheriff’s Office. However, at one home on the 900 block of Heron Drive in Suisun City, deputies contacted several people, the release states.
Bobbie Killough, 31, of Fairfield, was arrested on suspicion of possessing methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. Tamika Artis, 40, of Suisun City, was arrested on an outstanding warrant for suspected narcotics violations.
Both were taken into custody without incident and booked into the county jail, according to the release.
Killough’s bail was set at $15,000. She is scheduled to appear in court at 1:30 p.m. Friday. Artis was later cited and released from the jail and is scheduled to appear in court at 8:30 a.m. Oct. 9.
Although neither Killough nor Artis are registered sex offenders, these types of sweeps often result in deputies contacting people who are either wanted or committing other crimes, the release states.
Compliance checks on registered sex offenders who live within the county are done regularly to ensure the registrants are adhering to the terms of their registration and probation, according to the release. The compliance checks were funded by a Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement Task Force grant overseen by the Solano County Sheriff’s Office.
