A 44-year-old Pomona mother with an outstanding warrant in Bellflower was arrested for allegedly bringing marijuana along while visiting her son at a juvenile probation camp in San Dimas, a sheriff’s sergeant said. Rhonda Gonzales was arrested Saturday at Camp Glenn Rockey, located on
Sycamore Canyon Road, said Sgt. Raymond Roth of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department San Dimas station.
A routine search of Gonzales’ purse turned up “multiple bundles of marijuana along with a falsified medical marijuana card,” Roth said in a statement, adding that the woman was there to visit her son. Gonzales also had an outstanding warrant from the city of Bellflower. She was booked for a felony, bringing narcotics into a jail facility, and is being held at the Century Regional Detention Facility in lieu of $35,000 bail, according to a Sheriff’s Department statement.
During the past few months, probation camp officials have seen an influx in illegal drugs, primarily marijuana, in the dorm rooms of the camp, prompting additional search efforts. On Saturday, Jan. 14, the San Dimas Sheriff’s Station Special Assignment team, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, assisted probation camp personnel during visiting hours by searching vehicles in the parking lot of the camp as well as persons in the visiting area waiting to visit loved ones.
