Three arrested at suspected drug house in Carson City

Three Carson City residents were arrested on drug counts Saturday evening at a home in the 2600 block of Blossom View Lane.

According to the Sheriff’s Office:

Two deputies with the Special Enforcement Team went to the home to serve to arrest resident Robin Jensen on a contempt-of-court warrant. A man let them in, and they discovered Jensen had locked herself in the master bedroom and refused to come out. A deputy entered the bedroom through the window and arrested her.

The owner of the home, Steven Brown, consented to a search of the home. Deputies found a half-gram of methamphetamine, baggies with white drug residue, a wooden box containing spoons and baggies with drug residue, a bong, about 40 hypodermic devices, seven methamphetamine pipes and a digital scale with drug residue on it.

Jensen, 39, was arrested on the warrant, as well as on suspicion of felony possession of a controlled substance and possession of a hypodermic device. Bail was set at $3,000. Brown, 54, was arrested on suspicion of maintaining a drug house, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a hypodermic device. A third man, Robert Hopballe, 59, was arrested on suspicion of possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a hypodermic device.

Jensen and Brown remained in custody Monday afternoon. Hopballe had posted bail.
