Six arrested in drug raid at Olivenhain home

Posted: Updated:
ENCINITAS (CBS 8) - Six people were taken into custody Tuesday as part of a raid on a home in the North County.

It happened in the 1500 block of Rancho Encinitas Drive. Sheriff's deputies arrived at the home at about 5:30 a.m. to serve a warrant for drug activity.

The house near Caminito Ricardo had been the subject of several calls regarding suspicious and alleged drug-related activity for about a year, sheriff's Sgt. Richard George said.

Deputies previously arrested homeowner Anastasia Kirby, 49, on suspicion of carrying a concealed weapon, and Jeremy Henry, 38, for allegedly possessing a controlled substance.

The SWAT team descended on the 3,500-square foot house, to which the residents had made several modifications, and used pepper spray to flush out those inside about 45 minutes later, according to sheriff's Capt. Theresa Adams-Hydar.

The first to be taken into custody were Jeremy Dinwiddie, who was wanted on a felony warrant in a stalking case, and Jessica Wilkenson on suspicion of heroin possession. Henry was also taken into custody on suspicion of being an accessory to a crime, as were Paul Povency and John Switzer, George said.

Kirby was later found in a hidden room behind a bookcase and was subsequently arrested on suspicion of furnishing a drug house, the sergeant said.
