Rudy Torres and Karina Melgoa, both residents of Santa Ana, are being held at the Southwest Detention Center on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance, a Riverside County Sheriff’s Department news release states.

At 5:24 a.m., (Nothing good happens after midnight?) deputies responded to the casino, located in the 45000 block of Pechanga Parkway, in response to reports of drug activity at a vehicle inside the parking structure.

During a preliminary search, deputies found a large amount of methamphetamine and heroin in Torres’ clothes, the release states.

A subsequent search of the vehicle uncovered 183 grams (6 oz.) of methamphetamine and various drug contraband.
