L.A. County jail worker charged with trying to smuggle in drugs
A Los Angeles County sheriff’s custody assistant has been charged with trying to bring drugs into Men’s Central Jail, prosecutors said Tuesday.
Investigators found more than 100 grams of methamphetamine inside the car of Jose Flores, officials with the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office said. The bust happened in November 2018 inside the jail’s parking structure near downtown L.A.
“The public’s trust is eroded when law enforcement employees attempt to circumvent the law,” Dist. Atty. George Gascón said in a statement.
