Marijuana evidence returned to owners

Two women in their early 60s drove away from the Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office on Friday in a white van loaded with more than four pounds of marijuana, 100-plus grams of hashish and dozens of pot-infused food products.

But they weren’t arrested, nor were they followed.

Jana Marie Evans, 61, of Sonora, and Nancy June Smith, 60, of Copperopolis, were legally picking up their property that was seized by sheriff’s narcotic agents during a 2011 raid on their homes and East Sonora medical-marijuana dispensary that they operated with their sister Sara Tims Herrin, 58, and her son, Dannyjo Gellar Herrin, 30, both of Tuolumne.

The Tuolumne County District Attorney’s Office had accused the family of selling pot for profit out of the Today’s Health Collective on Via Este Road, which is against state laws regulating the cultivation and distribution of marijuana for medicinal purposes.

Tuolumne County District Attorney Michael Knowles dropped all pot-related charges against the four in May 2013. Sara Herrin pleaded guilty to possessing psychedelic mushrooms that were found during the raid on her home, but she can have that charge dropped as well after completing 18 months on probation.
