Joanne Segovia, the police union director for San Jose Police Officers' Association (SJPOA), has been charged with illegally importing Fentanyl into the U.S., as reported by the Washington Examiner. Ismail Ramsey, United States Attorney, and Charge Tatum King, Homeland Security Special Agent, announced the federal complaint against Segovia on Wednesday. The complaint alleges that she used her office at the SJPOA to distribute controlled substances and sent herself shipments from various countries, including Hong Kong, India, and Singapore, all labeled as “Wedding Party Favors,” “Chocolate and Sweets,” and “Gift Makeup.” [tweet_embed]March 31, 2023[/tweet_embed] The press release detailed, “For example, in spring 2021, Segovia was told by a supplier to send a package to a woman in North Carolina. Segovia then sent this supplier a photograph of a shipment made using the UPS account of San Jose Police Officers’ Association.” The United States Attorney’s Office of Northern California intercepted five of Segovia's shipments, finding thousands of dollars worth of pills, including the opioids Tramadol and Tapentadol, according to the complaint. Additionally, Segovia was said to have used WhatsApp, an encrypted messaging software, with a phone number with an India country code to facilitate these shipments. If convicted, Segovia could face a maximum sentence of 20 years and pay a fine of up to $250,000. The San Jose Police Officers' Association has not commented on the charges against Segovia. The Washington Examiner's report on the incident highlights the seriousness of the charges and the consequences of engaging in illegal activity.
