A 50-year-old woman was arrested Jan. 26 after California Department of Corrections officers at the Ben Lomond Conservation Camp in Bonny Doon saw her drop two large bags on the ground near the entrance of the low-security detention facility. Two inmates, one of whom was her son, retrieved the bags, which contained methamphetamine, marijuana, tobacco, food, a cell phone and other things.
The woman, Rhoda Nunley of Wheatland, was booked into Santa Cruz County Jail on suspicion of conspiracy to commit a crime, taking a controlled substance into a jail, taking alcohol to a jail and other charges.
