A woman whose two toddlers were killed by a commuter train while she was asleep has been arrested again for investigation of being under the influence of methamphetamine, officials said Thursday. Jackie Robles, 22, was taken into custody Wednesday in a motel room along with a man and two 17-year-old boys. Deputies served a warrant there because Robles failed to appear in court on a shoplifting charge, authorities said.

Police in Colton seized $400,000 worth of methamphetamine and $13,000 in cash in a raid prompted by a business card that advertised "good, high quality, uncut cocaine." The card, confiscated in neighboring Banning during a warrant search, announced "Colton's newest crack house" and gave an address, police said. "If you offer good, high quality, uncut cocaine, at a reasonable price, Southern California will beat a path to your door," the card said.
