March 17, 2023


San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a pair of Grover Beach residents on Thursday for firearms offenses and allegedly selling drugs out of a home near an elementary school. 

The Sheriff’s Special Operations Unit served a search warrant at a home in the 1100 block of Grand Avenue, less than 500 feet away from Grover Beach Elementary School. During the search of the residence, detectives seized 163 grams of methamphetamine and 158 grams of fentanyl, with a combined street value of approximately $6,700, according to the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office. 

Additionally, detectives seized two Glock style ghost handguns, an UZI fully automatic machine gun and a 12-gauge shotgun. 

Deputies arrested Brett William Douglass, 46, and Jacquelyn Sue Douglass, 56. Authorities booked Brett and Jacquelyn Douglass in SLO County Jail on charges of felon in possession of a firearm, possession of a machine gun, possession of a controlled substance while armed, possession for sale of a controlled substance and selling controlled substances within 1,000 feet of a school. 

Later, a judge approved an order for a bail increase. Both individuals remain in custody with their bail set at $250,000.

Does Grover Beach still have a PD If so, why?

Maybe the City Council can permit a meth and fentanyl lounge on Grand Avenue so that recreational users can have a safe place to fire their automatic weapons and partake in mind altering substance’s increasing the City’s tax base.

I hate to see someone disparage our local police, and provide absolutely no foundation for their unwarranted and vicious random attacks on the integrity and work ethic of our officers.

Sorry GG, but I must agree with Matt58 on this one. The police bring disparagement upon themselves when they display the offensive (and possible illegal) black and blue street gang symbol in what is otherwise an informative photograph. Unless maybe the “residents” actually possessed a desecrated flag, and it is part of the evidence against them.
