A search of the home also resulted in the discovery of several bags containing a crystalized substance, numerous pills, scales, glass smoking pipes, three long guns and one handgun.
Two stolen vehicles were also found on the property – a Lexus that was cut up in pieces for scrap and a 2017 Dodge Ram pickup truck that was in tact.
The owner of the residence – David Keith Berzier – was not home at the time of the search warrant.
Tomlinson was charged with possession of a weapon and possession of a schedule II drug. his bond was set at $10,000.
Sykes was charged with failure to appear, possession of a schedule II drug, introduction of drugs into a county institution and possession of drug paraphernalia. Her bond was set at $11,000.
