Drug Filled Burrito Gets Corrections Officer Arrested
A Colorado corrections officer is in serious trouble after a tip led to officials finding a burrito filled with drugs in his lunch box.
Trevor Martineau is facing a number of charges and has, obviously, lost his job. This comes after an inmate tipped investigators to the possibility of drugs being smuggled into the prison in Buena Vista by Martineau. Once he arrived he was met by an investigator and he told them he had drugs in his lunch box.
Inside they found a burrito packed with 91.4 grams of meth, 26.1 grams of heroin, 46 strips of suboxone, 10 strips of “suspected Buprenorphine Naloxone,” 13 “individually wrapped suspected marijuana wax” and 6 small thumb drives. What led them to look into the burrito was the plastic bag seen sticking out of one end.
Martineau was supposedly paid $1,000 to pick up the drugs and bring them into the prison. He will be in court next week to face a list of charges.
