Heroin-laced greeting cards intended for jail inmates
SAN BERNARDINO – (INT) – A greeting card mailed to an inmate at the Central Detention Center has landed the senders in jail.
A detailed investigation began September 13th when a greeting card elaborately laced with black tar heroin was intercepted in the mail screening process. It was intended for an inmate being held for an unrelated crime.
Search warrants capped an investigation and the arrests of Jessica Gomez, 34, of Ontario and Heather Christy, 29, of Montclair.
Sheriff’s investigators believe the pair planned to expand their heroin-laced greeting card scheme to other inmates.
