Child Endangerment Cited in Meth Bust


About a pound of methamphetamine, paraphernalia, and two guns were recovered when Sheriff’s deputies descended on a Patterson Road house in Orcutt on Tuesday. The 7 a.m. raid found three children in the residence and four adults: Joshua Honey, 33, Raeleen Alford, 30, Jonathan Alford, 28, and Natalie Hutcherson, 53.

The children were taken by ambulance to the hospital to see if they’d been affected by the nearby presence of the meth, and toxicology results are pending. Honey and Raeleen Alford were booked for child endangerment at County Jail, with Honey additionally charged for about six firearm and methamphetamine violations. Jonathan Alford was cited and released for being under the influence, and Hutcherson was cited and released on a charge of addict in possession of firearm.
