Cop Union Exec. Charged With Running a Fentanyl Distribution Operation from Her Home

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.

“This person has been really known as the grandma of the POA, and it’s not the woman that we have known for well over a decade and so that’s why it’s been so difficult,” Pritchard said, “A woman who has helped fallen officer’s families, helped organize fundraisers when officer’s children are sick. That’s the person we know.”

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.
