According to the officers’ report, Luster, 41, had not checked in with her probation officer “in a while.”
During the search the officers reportedly found a lockbox containing several cell phones.

The officers also reported finding scales, a spoon with residue and cotton on it, an unloaded syringe and 1.6 grams of suspected meth during a probation search of his home.
Summers was charged with possession of a controlled substance (meth) and two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia (felony and misdemeanor).
