RONNIE CHAMBERS

A man was arrested on April 11 by the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Department after allegedly selling controlled substances to undercover detectives.

Deputies received a report in January that a man was threatening the life of another, a press release stated. The man was identified as Ronnie Chambers, 51, a parolee from Placerville. During the investigation into the threats, it was found that Chambers wanted to sell cocaine.

Later that month, undercover detectives arranged to purchase $200-worth of cocaine from Chambers. They met with him in Placerville, where Chambers “sold them a substance similar in appearance to cocaine,” the press release stated. It was later found to be crushed pills containing morphine.

The undercover detectives later called Chambers, complaining about the product and demanding either the $200 back or the cocaine originally agreed to. Chambers agreed to give $100 back and provide them with the “real thing.”

In February, while still under investigation for the original threats, the detectives met with Chambers. He gave them the $100 and, instead of cocaine, a small amount of crystal methamphetamine.

Chambers contacted the detectives on April 11 to try to sell them heroin. The detectives met with Chambers, purchasing the heroin and then arresting the man. Chambers’ passenger, Lauren Bond, 22, of Shingle Springs, was arrested for alleged possession of controlled substance paraphernalia and for an active narcotics warrant.

Chambers is on unsupervised parole and remains in custody on without bail on five felony charges related to narcotics and violation of parole/probation.
