29 March 2012, at approx. 7:38 pm, Officers from the Sonora Police Department responded to the parking lot of Wal-Mart regarding a report of two subjects smoking marijuana inside a parked vehicle.

Officers arrived and observed evidence of drug use inside the vehicle. One of the subjects inside the vehicle was identified as Adam Hoskins, 25 of Sonora. Hoskins is currently out on his own recognizance from an arrest in January 2012 for being in possession of controlled substances; possession of stolen property; giving false information to a police officer; bringing a controlled substance into the jail; and possession of drug paraphernalia.
