Santa Clara County Deputy Arrested on Suspicion of Smuggling Meth into Correctional Facility


In April of 2020, Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office Detectives received information that a Correctional Deputy was involved in smuggling methamphetamine into the Elmwood Correctional Facility on behalf of inmates.

An extensive 2-month investigation revealed that Mayra Rios (35) of Antioch, California was the involved Deputy. Detectives sought authorization for a higher bail amount from a magistrate based her aggravating circumstances, which include access to funds, her former position of authority and influence, and potential flight risk.

Mayra Rios is currently being held at the Santa Clara County Main Jail on $1,000,000 bail according to the press release.


  1. A “corrections deputy.”
    Not a real deputy/police officer.
    They are almost as corrupt as CDC guards. Good riddance!!
