CALIPATRIA, Calif. (KYMA, KECY) - A Correctional Officer at Calipatria Prison caught a woman in possession of illegal drugs Saturday.

Luz M. Rodriguez was visiting inmate Pedro E. Espinoza when she was found in possession of the contraband.

The inmate Espinoza was housed in Administration Segregation due to his joint-attempt of entering the drug into the Prison through a visitation.

28-year-old Espinoza was admitted in September 2018 to serve 18 years for false imprisonment, criminal threats, and corporal injury to a domestic partner.

Upon investigation, it was concluded the two small bundles contained Herion.

Rodriguez attempted to smuggle two bindles of Heroin. The first weighed-in at just over three grams, while the other was closer to five.

She has been booked into the Imperial County Jail.
