Narcotics Detectives with the Santa Barbara Sheriff's Special Investigations Bureau have arrested five subjects following an investigation into the delivery of illegal narcotics into the Santa Barbara County Jail through the U.S. Postal Service.

Narcotics Detectives became aware of the illegal activity after mail laced with methamphetamine was discovered as it was being sent to a subject that was in custody at the Main Jail facility. Through their investigation, it was determined that the girlfriend of the subject in custody was responsible for the methamphetamine laced mail.

Narcotics Detectives subsequently conducted a search warrant last Thursday in the 4500 block of Auhay Drive, Santa Barbara. As a result of the investigation and service of the search warrant, the following five subjects were arrested:
