Arrests In Front Of County Jail

San Andreas, CA– Two arrests were made this week in front of the Calaveras County Jail.


According to the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Department, on Wednesday at around 8:30 pm, members of the Sheriff’s Narcotics Enforcement Unit as well as members of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation K-9 unit, contacted Cheryl Pearson of Valley Springs in front of the jail.


Before locating her, a search warrant had been obtained for Pearson and her vehicle. They believed that Pearson was delivering controlled substances into the jail where a family member is currently in custody.


Pearson was arrested for being under the influence of a controlled substance and driving under the influence of a controlled substance. A search by correctional staff was also conducted, and during the search Pearson retrieved a container and immediately swallowed it. She also assaulted a Correctional Officer.


Because the container that was swallowed by Pearson was believed to contain controlled substances, Pearson was immediately transported to a nearby medical center for treatment and prevention of a possible drug overdose.


Following treatment and observation, Pearson was booked into the Calaveras Jail on charges of criminal conspiracy, destruction of evidence, assault on a correctional officer, driving under the influence of a controlled substance, and being under the influence of a controlled substance.


During the incident, Jennifer Martin of Valley Springs was also arrested. Martin is charged with possession of a controlled substance without a prescription.


Also, as a result of the incident, charges of criminal conspiracy were added to John Pearson who was already in custody of the Calaveras County Jail.
