Parolees pass out in stolen car after smoking meth

Two women out on parole were found passed out in stolen car with a bag of meth, glass pipe


LINDSAY – Two women out on parole were sent back to jail last week after officers found them passed out in their car with a bag of meth and a glass pipe.

Lindsay Police officers pulled up behind the car just after 6 a.m. on March 30 on Alameda Street near Lafayette Avenue because it matched the description of a stolen vehicle. When the officer approached the gold 1998 Toyota Camry she found two females sleeping inside the vehicle identified as 34-year-old Jessica Moya and 35-year-old Crystal Barragan. 

Both Moya and Barragan were on active parole and arrested immediately. Barragan was a parolee at large and had an active parole hold for her arrest. While searching the vehicle the officer found a plastic baggy of methamphetamine and a glass pipe. Moya was arrested for possession of a controlled substance and both subjects were transported to the PD for processing. 

While at the PD, Moya’s parole agent was contacted and a parole hold was issued for Moya. Both subjects were later housed at the Visalia Pre-Trial Facility.
