Two separate women were arrested Wednesday on suspicion of attempting to smuggle drugs into the San Joaquin County Jail during separate inmate visits.

Crystal Ann Stevenson was in possession of 2.2 grams of methamphetamine and 2.1 grams of THC, according to a news release issued by the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies searched Stevenson’s vehicle and found 8 more grams of methamphetamine and another 1.6 grams of THC, according to the release.

She was booked into the very jail she walked into and posted her bond shortly thereafter, according to the release.

Patricia Anne Burton was in possession of a total of 8.7 grams of methamphetamine and marijuana, according to the release.

A search of her car revealed 50.2 grams of marijuana, 49.6 grams of methamphetamine, .8 grams of a white substance, a scale, a pipe and plastic bags, according to the release.

Burton was booked into the jail and is still in custody, according to the release.

“When you come to visit an inmate at the San Joaquin County Jail, it’s never a good idea to bring illegal drugs with you,” the sheriff’s office wrote on Facebook. “Yesterday was a busy day for our Custody K9s and their handlers.”
