17 January 2012, at approx. 5:55 pm, Officers from the Sonora Police Department responded to the parking lot of Sonora Regional Medical Center regarding a physical fight in progress.

During the Officers investigation, they contacted Adam Hoskins, 25 of Jamestown and Ashley Reiser, 28 of Columbia. Reiser gave officers a false name because she knew she had an outstanding warrant. She was later identified and arrested on the outstanding warrant. She was also found to be in the possession of a hypodermic needle.

Hoskins was also in possession of a “hip kit,” which contained hypodermic needles, a spoon with narcotic residue and other items associated with the injection of narcotics.

Both Hoskins and Reiser were placed under arrest and transported to the Tuolumne County Jail for booking. While Hoskins was being searched at the jail by a deputy, a couple of pills fell from his body onto the floor. A strip search and body cavity search of Hoskins revealed 26 Hydrocodone and 8 Adderal pills concealed in his anal cavity.
