Four people were arrested following an investigation into stolen property, but it was more than just pilfered goods that Lake Elsinore deputies allegedly turned up.

The investigation stemmed from reports of stolen construction equipment and tools, and on the afternoon of Oct. 10 deputies conducted a probation search in “a rural portion of Horsethief Canyon that abuts the Cleveland National Forest,” according to a report from Sgt. Marc Cloutier.  

“During the search of the property, deputies located items reported stolen from three separate incidents. Deputies additionally discovered a convicted felon in possession of two rifles and a pistol as well as methamphetamine,” he continued.

Riverside County Code Enforcement and a representative from the Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Board also assisted during the investigation and discovered “numerous dangerous conditions and environmental contamination,” according to Cloutier.

Arrested in the 29700 block of Cow Canyon Road were Scott Harrison, 55, of Horsethief Canyon, on suspicion of possession of stolen property; Charles Koster, 47, of Horsethief Canyon, on suspicion of unlawful possession of firearms and possession of methamphetamine; and Susan Codd, 48, of Lake Elsinore, on suspicion of possession of methamphetamines for the purpose of sales, Cloutier reported.

Eric Kisner, 47, of Horsethief Canyon was also arrested on suspicion of outstanding drug-related warrants. 

Harrison and Koster were both released on bail today and are due in court Dec. 5; Codd is still in custody in lieu of $25,000 bail, according to jail records. Bail for Harrison and Koster was set at $5,000 apiece, jail records show. 

There is no jail record for Kisner at press time and the sheriff’s department has not released a booking photo.

Guys, I get it, the economy is rough out there... but Breaking Bad is only a TV show... you're not supposed to use it as career advice.
