Last year, a former California deputy was arrested for smuggling over 100 pounds of fentanyl tablets. His arrest was part of an investigation into a Sinaloa cartel that “El Chapo” previously ran.

Jorge Oceguera Rocha, 25, was suspected of being involved in a complex drug-smuggling operation, using his position as a law enforcement official to assist the Mexican cartel’s operations.

After his arrest in September of 2023, Banning resident Jorge Oceguera-Rocha resigned from his position as a correctional assistant.

Officials claim that he had been driving in his vehicle when he stopped. Investigators claim they found a firearm and 104 pounds worth of fentanyl in his car.

The Press-Enterprise reported that investigators didn’t specify how they discovered Oceguera-Rocha was involved in drug trafficking. However, it is now clear that he’s the “corrupt Riverside County correctional deputy” mentioned in the Wednesday press release promoting Operation Hotline Bling.

This operation, which resulted in 15 arrests and the confiscation of $16,000,000 in narcotics was targeted at the Sinaloa cartel’s activities in the Inland Empire.

Oceguera Rocha became the subject of an investigation by Riverside County Sheriff’s Investigators, who were monitoring him. The former deputy was being monitored by the sheriff’s investigators who were surveilling him.

Oceguera Rocha, 25, pleaded not guilty to the charges of possession and transportation of narcotics with intent to distribute them, both felonies. He also pleaded no guilty to a sentencing enhancement for possession of firearms while committing a felony. The District Attorney’s Office stated that the Banning resident who was assigned to the city’s jail could face a maximum of 10 years of custody if found guilty.

Oceguera Rocha was held at John Benoit Detention Center Indio as a result of a $5 million bail. The bail hearing has been scheduled for October 31. The attorney for the defendant has not responded to a telephone message asking him for comment.

A sheriff’s investigator filed in Superior Court a document asking the judge to require Oceguera Rocha to prove that, if he tries to post bail, the money he uses is legal.

Oceguera Rocha was discovered by the authorities when they intercepted his call in September, in which he stated that he would travel to a stash house for narcotics in Victorville. After arriving at the house, he left about 10 minutes later and went to Calimesa.

Oceguera Roche was pulled over by a deputy for narcotics enforcement as he approached County Line Road, on the 10 Freeway at Calimesa. Deputies were alerted to the smell of drugs by a K9 drug detector. The document states that deputies discovered four trash bags in the trunk containing square-shaped packaging wrapped with cellophane.

The document states that the blue M30 pills, which were laced with fentanyl, were found inside the packages.

In a report, one of the investigators stated that Oceguera Roche had enough fentanyl to “kill approximately 2,000,000 people.”

Fentanyl, smuggled across the southern border is a serious problem for many Americans. This is especially true in the current border crisis. The border crisis has been exploited by cartels to smuggle drugs and people into the U.S..

The opioid is responsible for tens of thousands of drug-related deaths, particularly during the COVID-19 epidemic. The Opioid is particularly dangerous because it is often mixed with other street drugs, and users are unaware that they are consuming it.
