Officers said they also found digital scales and packaging material associated with narcotic sales in the home. as well as $2,000 in cash in Som’s possession.

Som was booked into Sonoma County Jail on suspicion of possession for sale of cocaine, ecstasy, prescription opiates and possession of ammunition, a felony. Jail records show he was no longer in custody Thursday.
