Drug Bust in District Court
On Wednesday, February 27, 2010 Detectives from the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office intercepted a call from a female inmate made from the Pueblo County Jail.
The call intercepted was from an inmate to her boyfriend. The call consisted of a plan between the two parties to place prescription narcotics inside the Division C courtroom where the inmate could retrieve them. The inmate was scheduled to be sentenced in Division C.
Narcotics detectives contacted the judge and made arrangements to monitor the courtroom. At approximately 11:00 AM the boyfriend entered the courtroom and was observed by detectives from the Sheriff’s Narcotics Unit dropping what were later found to be schedule II narcotics inside the jury box.
