San Luis Obispo County deputies arrested a Pismo Beach man for allegedly sending his incarcerated girlfriend a greeting card containing methamphetamine in December.
A deputy at the jail discovered meth wrapped in plastic and hidden in the card sent to Samantha Long, 29, and deputies began searching for the sender.
After Long was released from jail, they traced the card to her boyfriend Jason Hunter, 44. Deputies arrested the couple at a Pismo Beach hotel where they also discovered two ounces of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.
Deputies arrested Hunter for possession of a controlled substance for sale, sending a controlled substance to jail, being a felon in possession of a firearm and nine other charges. His bail is set at $215,000.
Long was charged with bringing a controlled substance to jail, conspiracy to commit a crime, preparing false evidence and possession of an opium pipe. She is being held without bail.
