KINGMAN–A detention officer was arrested Monday for allegedly providing heroin and other contraband to inmates at the county jail.
Mohave County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Anita Mortensen said Ashley Desiree Aquino, 24, of Bullhead City, was arrested following an investigation by Mohave Area General Narcotics Enforcement (MAGNET) team.
Mortensen said MAGNET received information that a detention officer at the Mohave County Adult Detention facility was bringing heroin in to the facility.
On Nov. 5 around 5:30 p.m., MAGNET detectives and Mohave County Sheriff’s Office deputies detained Aquino for questioning, where she reportedly admitted to bringing heroin and other contraband to inmates at the facility. Searches were conducted by staff and it was determined that the heroin had been disposed of before the searches began, however other nuisance contraband was located.
Aquino was arrested on suspicion of promoting prison contraband, a felony.
Sheriff Doug Schuster stated that he was surprised by the actions of Aquino.
“I hold all of my personal accountable to their Oath of Office and will ensure that every measure is taken to fully prosecute Aquino for her actions.”
