Two arrested for allegedly smuggling drugs into jail
Detectives charged Jean-Paul George Deserres, 50, and Heather Renee Doty, 35, with drug distribution.
The Fauquier sheriff’s office has charged an inmate and a Culpeper woman with distribution of methamphetamine in the county jail.
“Early this week, detectives with the Special Operations Unit and deputies at the detention center conducted the investigation after it was learned that methamphetamine was being mailed to an inmate at the facility,” sheriff’s Sgt. James Hartman said in a press release. “Detention center staff intercepted mail containing suspected methamphetamine intended for the inmate.”
Sheriff’s detectives charged the inmate, Jean-Paul George Deserres, 50, with soliciting another to sell, give or distribute a controlled substance and attempting to possess a controlled substance, according to Sgt. Hartman.
Mr. Deserres, of Culpeper, had remained in jail awaiting trial on previous charges of remains methamphetamine distribution. Those offenses allegedly took place in December. After grand jury indictment, authorities arrested him in June.
Detectives this week also charged Heather Renee Doty, 35, of Culpeper, with distribution of a controlled substance.
Ms. Doty was held on a $3,000 secured bond at the time of her arrest.
“We don’t see a lot of it here,” Sgt. Hartman said. “But, it’s not unusual for inmates to smuggle drugs” into a jail.
Last August, two inmates saved another who overdosed on heroin. He apparently consumed the drug while on work release.

Great running of the jail by the Sheriff's Office. No contraband should be able to be smuggled in by inmates. An inmate overdosed while on work release? Why was the inmate released from jail supervision? If you're in custody you should remain in custody. I'm not a big fan of work release. Is the Sheriff worried about this?
