Sending Meth to an Inmate
Boulder County Jail Taking in More Than Just Inmates
Cristal M Clark
I am not quite sure how exactly this happened but it seems that liquid meth was being sent to inmates at the Boulder County Jail recently with the help of the US Postal Service and, that the drugs had been sent undetected. That is until an anonymous tipster reported the activity to the Boulder County Sheriffs department.
Nothing surprises me anymore right, why would anyone send drugs to inmates, talk about risky.
According to the incident report, when the inmates involved were identified, several letters tested positive for meth. And, it took investigators roughly 6 months to determine that the tipster had provided accurate intel through a totally unnecessary investigation, I mean if you test one or two letters or photos that more or less spells out toured details rather gloriously.
At any rate, investigators found that 109.82 grams of methamphetamine-soaked paper and 137.92 grams of ketamine-soaked photos entered the jail via mail, to the suspected inmates and had been distributed around the facility.
Really? I’m not quite sure how I feel about this. It’s been known for quite some time that inmates are utilising drug soaked paper and photos to get drugs into jails and jails have yet to figure out a way to sort out how to detect it? So you’ve got drug deals happening in the yard? High inmates just whacked out on meth wondering about the jail? And no one noticed anything out a wee bit off? Right?
Well, that sounds quite lovely.
All in all 5 inmates were rounded up and are now facing fresh new charges along, in some cases with the one’s they were already sitting in county jail on.
The Four Horsemen in this incident are and I am more than sure not entirely limited to:
33-yer-old Keith Alan Beyer, 25-year-old Brett Heath Imhof, 49-year-old Kelley Christine Larkin, 34-year-old Kelli Rae Lynch and, one 36-year-old unidentified inmate with charges pending. The two ladies were civilians and not housed at the jail, so I would assume the senders of the drug laden mail.
The charges are extensive in this case but to name a few they are:
Conspiracy to manufacture, distribute, or possess with intent to manufacture or distribute controlled substances.
Conspiracy to manufacture, distribute, or possess with intent to manufacture or distribute controlled substances – schedule I or II – 14 to 225 grams
Introducing contraband in both the first and second degree and from both inside and outside of the jail.
Some of the charges if you read the entirety of the report seem excessive and repetitive, which is part of the rather archaic way our judicial system is designed. Its purpose is to ensure any charge on the table sticks and its fan of the maximum sentencing.
I get it, these individuals broke the law so we charge them but a lists of charges that end up the length of a Stephen King Novel? The first charge is quite enough, we don’t need to go overboard with charging people, it’s a complete waste of tax dollars and time and effort especially after an unnecessary 6 month investigation just to get the same answer you would have gotten within minutes. There really is no need to the excess here.
Sounds like they really had it out for this crew.
