Investigators found that between October of 2015 and January 2023, Joanne Segovia, 65, who is a 20-year employee of the San Jose Police Officers Association (SJPOA), allegedly had approximately 61 shipments of drugs, including fentanyl, mailed to her home coming from countries all over the world, including, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, and Singapore. Segovia allegedly used her personal and office computers to order the drugs and agreed to distribute them elsewhere in the U.S.
According to the criminal complaint, Homeland Security agents were led to Segovia through an investigation that looked into a network they say ships controlled substances made in India.
A network operative’s phone was searched and they found messages that were found to be linked to Segovia and her San Jose address.
Segovia is due in court Friday at 1 p.m.
If convicted, she faces a maximum sentence of 20 years.
