Minden, NV- In the early morning hours of Thursday May 14th, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office SWAT Team executed a search warrant at 699 Bonnie Court in Stateline, NV.  The search warrant was the culmination of a five month long investigation by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO) Street Enforcement Team into the methamphetamine trafficking activities of Joseph Cudia, a 45 year old male from Sacramento and Diego Coralles, a 47 year old male from South Lake Tahoe.  Cudia and Coralles were both taken into custody without incident.

Coralles and Cudia were hiding out in a home on Bonnie Court, which is a vacation rental, without permission from the home owner. 

During the course of the investigation, over 500 grams (1.1 pounds) of methamphetamine were purchased during undercover operations. 

Cudia and Coralles were both booked into the Douglas County Jail and are being charged with Trafficking a Schedule 1 Controlled Substance, Burglary, Possession of a Controlled Substance and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.  Their bail was set at $50,000 each. Cudia also had a Fugitive Warrant out of Eldorado County.

A third subject, 27 year old Megan Turkington, who was also illegally staying at the home was arrested and charged with Burglary, Possession of a Controlled Substance and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
