Frank Abbruzzetti, 34, was taken into custody shortly after 5:30 p.m. Friday at his home at 316 Prescott lane after an anonymous caller reported methamphetamine was being “cooked” at the residence.
Responding officers said they arrived to find Abbruzzetti smoking a meth pipe inside as they walked up to the open front door.
Two women in the house were detained for questioning and released without charge. Abbruzzetti, a graduate of Humboldt State University with a degree in chemistry, had taught at Pacific Grove Middle School and was an unemployed substitute teacher and youth recreation coach.
Fall, 2006. The house sits empty.
