    Suspects arrested for Allegedly for Mailing Drugs into Pre-Trial Detention Facility

    Ventura County Sheriff Department – Incident Press Release

    On June 14, 2019, a Pre-Trial Detention Facility Mail Room Clerk notified the Classification Unit that Suboxone was detected on mail that was being sent to an inmate who is housed at the jail. The Mail Room clerks are trained to identify contraband that is being sent in through the mail.

    The mail consisted of an envelope addressed to Inmate Jason Alberto Allen. Concealed within the adhesive seam of the envelope opening were two rectangular strips of Suboxone. The Classification Unit has become familiar with Suboxone strips as other subjects have attempted to mail them in, in the past.

    The Classification Unit conducted an investigation and was able to identify the sender as Jennifer Lee Singleton. On June 20, 2019, with the assistance of the Sheriff Narcotic’s Pharmaceutical Unit, Singleton was located and arrested. Singleton was booked at the Pre-Trial Detention Facility for conspiracy to commit a crime, bringing narcotics into a jail, and unauthorized communication with an inmate. Allen who was currently in custody at the Pre-Trial Detention Facility was arrested for conspiracy to commit a crime. Singleton’s and Allen’s bail was set at $20,000.

    Prior Mail Investigations:

    Since January of 2019, the Classification Unit has investigated over seven cases regarding drugs being mailed to inmates at the Pre-Trial Detention Facility. As a result of these investigations, three search warrants were served, and 11 arrests were made. Some of the arresting charges include conspiracy to commit a crime, bringing narcotics into a jail, and possession of a controlled substance.
