Woman Arrested for Attempting to Smuggle Methamphetamine to Inmate in San Diego Jail
SANTEE, Calif.—In a shocking incident, a woman was apprehended on September 11 for allegedly trying to sneak methamphetamine to an inmate in a San Diego-area jail using a drug-soaked piece of mail.
Misty S. Vantine, 45, was taken into custody on September 8 in a parking area at George Bailey Detention Facility in Otay Mesa, as reported by the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.
It all started when deputies at the jail mail-processing facility noticed something suspicious on August 23. A letter intended for an inmate appeared to have been drenched in a liquid and then dried. Sgt. Aaron Brooke stated that upon conducting a chemical test on the correspondence, they made a shocking discovery—it had been infused with liquid methamphetamine.
After a thorough investigation, it was determined that Ms. Vantine was the one who had sent the drug-spiked letter, according to Mr. Brooke.
Ms. Vantine has been booked into Las Colinas women’s jail in Santee on suspicion of multiple charges, including sending an illicit drug to a jail facility, attempting to sell a controlled substance to an inmate, and criminal conspiracy.
