Five women have been arrested on drug charges at a Live Oak retirement community.
Yuba-Sutter Narcotic Enforcement Team Commander Mike Hudson says an undercover agent bought methamphetamine from occupants of an apartment at the Senior Village and Retirement Community.
Five women, ages 44 to 63, were arrested Thursday night for possession of illegal drugs or drug paraphernalia, although none was accused of selling or having methamphetamine.
Hudson said a small amount of meth was found hidden inside a vacuum cleaner.
Authorities said only one of the women is a legal resident of the 50-unit retirement community.
Another resident was arrested in March after police found meth hidden inside a cane. Jose Anguiano pleaded guilty to possession of methamphetamine and is scheduled for sentencing Tuesday.
