Fall Branch gunfire reportedly leads police to meth near infant

Two Fall Branch residents were arrested last weekend after one fired a shot from their house, leading a deputy to find methamphetamine near an 8-month-old child inside, according to court documents.

Brandon J. Poulter, 36, and Sonia Raquel Francis, 40, were arrested after Washington County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Matthew Casura investigated the situation Saturday at 627 Highway 93.

About 10:45 p.m., Casura responded to Poulter’s 911 call stating he had fired a shot from his window but did not know whether he had wounded anyone. Poulter’s call was the fourth to 911 in a 24-hour period, as he had told dispatchers had seen people in his yard attempting to break into the house.
