Four arrested in Needles drug bust, child endangering.

Early morning hours in the quiet town of Needles were disrupted when authorities executed a search warrant and subsequently cuffed four individuals on a range of charges, including child endangerment and drug offenses, the raid laid bare the underbelly of a seemingly ordinary residence transformed into a drug den by its occupants, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.

The search took place on the 1700 block of Collins Street, where deputies and detectives converged to unearth illegal activities, as detailed in an official release. Teresa Bilgard, 54, Darby Wright, 28, and William Ford, 39, all hailing from Needles, face child endangerment and maintaining a drug house charges, while Tuesday Gloyn, 46, also of Needles, was nabbed for clutching a controlled substance in her grasp.

Despite the group's entanglement with the law, Gloyn found herself with a citation and the freedom of the streets shortly after being processed whereas her alleged accomplices, Bilgard, Wright, and Ford remained behind bars, each tethered to a $60,000 bond according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.

The law enforcers have put forth a call to the public, urging any who might hold a fragment of knowledge concerning the case to step forward and contact Deputy Jeremy Deruiter, with the option for anonymity through the We-Tip Hotline or its accompanying website for those who wish to avoid the spotlight.

Details from this morning's law enforcement action are continually being updated on social media platforms, where the Colorado River Station/Needles Police Department maintains a presence and delivers timely information to those who keep an eagle eye on the local happenings.
