Webber then reportedly exited his vehicle and accosted a 13-year-old on her way to school pointing a gun at her and trying to coerce her into his truck. The girl screamed and ran to the school, while witnesses recorded the truck’s license plate number and alerted the authorities.

Kimberly Quach, the mother of a Cathedral Catholic High School student, is suspected of selling marijuana and prescription drugs to her daughter’s school friends. Police reported that she allegedly sold drugs to the minors during a period beginning January 1, 2017, through the time of her arrest in late September.

As stated in court documents, she is also accused of recruiting a teenage girl for the purpose of selling marijuana to students at both Cathedral Catholic and La Jolla High Schools. In addition, Quach allegedly instructed the girl on how to accept payment from purchasers both online and in cash. When the girl was questioned she claimed that she made less than 10 marijuana sales, each weighing under one ounce, in the month preceding Quach’s arrest.

Quach’s dwelling was purportedly a well-known party house for teenagers looking for a place to purchase and use marijuana, prescription medication and alcohol. Parents of one of the partiers found suboxone pills in their child’s bedroom, along with text messages of their daughter asking Quach to obtain pain medication for her. The authorities were notified, and an 8-month investigation began.
