The Vacaville Police Department Narcotic Enforcement Team and Special Weapons and Tactics Team served a search warrant at 10 a.m. on the 500 block of Meadows Court. Police said they found marijuana, methamphetamine, concentrated cannabis, a loaded firearm and evidence of manufacturing concentrated cannabis, a police press release said.

Police arrested Vacaville residents Crystal Casillas and Spiegel Derpich-Hauser on suspicion of possessing marijuana for sale, possessing methamphetamine for sale, manufacture of a controlled substance, possession of a firearm with a controlled substance and child endangerment, the press release said.

    No kidding. It you want to be a loser don't have kids. Really?! Cooking up drugs while your three kids sit by. Thank goodness the geniuses didn't burn down the house with the children in it. Now these poor kids get to experience the foster care system. The first step to what promises to be a bleak future.

    "Cooking up drugs while your three kids sit by", where did you get that info, it is not in the article.

    I beg to differ. "...and placed three children in protective custody." "...evidence of manufacturing concentrated cannabis..." and "...evidence of manufacturing controlled substance..", (you don't have to "manufacture" a marijuana plant) All right there in the article. Mr.R my apologies. You are right there are many great foster care providers. I should have been clearer. What I meant was that having parents who chose to bring a child into this world provide a loving home is preferable to having parents who neglect their children to the extent their children have to go into foster care at all. No slight intended to the selfless work foster care providers do. Thank you to you and all foster care providers!

    My2cents. I resent that comment on foster care. I will admit that not all foster care is good but,it's only a few bad apples that give foster care a bad rep. My wife and I have adopted 2 girls thru foster care and I know others who have done the same thing.I know many families who take these children in and they become part of thier family.We have 3 children who we fostered 16 years ago who still stay in contact with us.Being a foster parent is not an easy task,theres a ton of paper work and regulations,and contrary to what people think,there is no money to make in fostering,you never get enough to give the children everthing they need.So, please don't slam the foster care system unless your willing to be part of the solution.

    Poor kids. Do not worry though they will be back with the parents before you know it. Sad but true.

    They will go back with their parents because people do what the courts ask and turn their lives around. They will likely get help, parenting classes and various other resources and tools they never had. You have no clue these people's lives and while yours may not be as big or publicized no parent is without mistakes. Ultimately, if the courts can get this turned around and this family back on track it's best for everyone especially the kids. But I get how easy it is to lack compassion or speak from a lack of understanding of these situations but if you ever see a family turned around, then you'd get it but you're all probably too busy to get involved. It's easier to judge!

    anonymous, yes some parents make mistakes. Other are downright st*pid beyond belief. I made mistakes but I didn't cook illegal drugs in my house. I didn't keep and sell illicit paraphernalia. These kids might get back home and actually survive the ordeal. But will they become excellent citizens too? Probably not so much.

    And you likely didn't grow up in it, so for all you know these parents are repeating a cycle passed down for generations. do you know there are grandfathers, fathers and sons in prison because they don't know better. There are situations where people are caught in bad relationships and fearful to get out. So while it is easy to judge an article at face value I'm grateful the courts here are more concerned with the facts of the case. What they did is criminal and deserves consequences but you have no clue why people do the things they do. Try advocating for foster kids and you'll see that parents do get help and turn it around and that's my hope for this family. If not then I hope the kids find a stable home. Again, feel free to get involved because until you do you're just talking out your rear end!!

    anonymous, you keep believing that. I worked hard all my life so my family would be safe and happy. We provided them with a good warm and loving home. I helped many of their friends along the way and they too are productive citizens today. Don't talk to me about getting involved. But by all means, keep dreaming the dream.

    "there are grandfathers, fathers and sons in prison because they don't know better" -anonymous Shouldn't these people know better than anyone, the consequences for violating the law? They have an "in living color" example of what not to do. Also, I didnt know that it was such a big secret that manufacturing and selling drugs was illegal. No one told these folks this behavior was a bad idea? Guess we can't hold them accountable for their actions. They were after all, just about to get their lives in order.

    If you want to do drugs leave the kids out of it. Slowly kill yourself and be done with it. Do not subject them to this evil.

    Legalize the drugs and put the government thugs out of business---the dope dealers too! The war on drugs is a failure and continuing to pursue it will continue to be expensive and fruitless. I dissaprove of militarized troops charging through neighborhoods when the solution is legalization, regulation and taxation. The cops are thugs and criminals and so are their symbiotic pals--the drug dealers. Get rid of both entities!

    I cant believe i am agreeing with Mr. Giddens about something(publicly). The key to this problem, and many others in our community, is the legalization and regulation of drugs and other vices often deemed as "victimless crimes" i.e. Gambling, prostitution, etc.. I know mine is not a popular belief, but if you take away what the gangs control the gangs lose their power and the crime rates drop. And i know there is no mention of gangs or violence here but an educated look at the problem will note the correlation.

    Some of you guys make me sick. I always see most of you talk so bad about the area and talk bad about the "hoodlums and thugs and gangsters" but I look at the story about two young men how did something positive with their lives and there are no comments on the story. I have yet to see anyone congratulate these young men for following their dreams and working hard to achieve their goals. What really gets me about this is if you saw them in high school you would have called them all of those things because of their appearance.

    Hey "Voice of the Youth". If there are no comments on the story about "two young men how did something positive with their lives" it is because YOU did not make a comment on that story. How sick does that make you?

    I didn't make a comment on the story because I spoke to the young men personally. They are people I knew in highschool so I was able to tell them that I was proud of them. As I have with all of my friends that are doing something with themselves . It just pains me to see all these individuals succeeding and the only recognition received is for the negative things.

    And nobody congratulated your pals for their efforts to follow their dreams and work hard to achieve their goals? To 'almost' quote Chris Rock--"you're supposed to do that you DMFer" . Do they really need a pat on the back for doing the right thing--the thing CR says they are supposed to do? My original post hours ago had a you tube link--maybe that's why it was cancered out.

    So let me get this straight you don't want to commend young men who follow their dreams and actually achieve something but are quick to complain and say negative things when people do wrong? That re-enforces everything that we believed when we were growing up, especially on the school system. People doing the wrong thing will always get the attention, if you do the right things then we are left to fend for ourselves because "we have to help the bad kids" and people wonder why these kids are doing the wrong thing. Well General you just found your answer.

    Youth--thanks for your advice about what others should do but you refused to do yourself. Empty talk without deeds, being rewarded for doing what you should do, doublespeak...sounds to me like you are all prepared to enter the world of politics.
