Two women were arrested after police investigators linked them to the manufacture and intended distribution of methamphetamine and black tar heroin laced greeting cards inside San Bernardino County’s Central Detention Center.
One of these greeting cards, which was discovered by investigators on September 13, 2019, was addressed to and intended for a current inmate. The release stated that “the heroin was elaborately concealed within the greeting card in an attempt to pass it through detection during the inmate mail screening process.”
Investigators identified 34-year-old Jessica Gomez of Ontario and 29-year-old Heather Christy of Ontario as the manufacturers of the cards. Search warrants were served at each of their residents, which resulted in their arrests.
The release adds, “The search warrants led to the discovery of additional evidence related to the conspiracy, as well as possession of stolen property and possession of narcotics.” The women were booked into custody on conspiracy to send narcotics into a jail facility and each have a bail set at $100,000.
The intended recipient of the discovered greeting card, 36-year-old Pierre Cambrelen of Ontario, now faces additional charges. Cambrelen is being held without bail on charges unrelated to this case.
