Talk about a couple of real losers. A probationer and his girlfriend are accused of dealing drugs out of a Riverside home and using a drone to deliver the contraband to customers.
The Mercury News reports that Benjamin Paul Baldassarre, 39, and Ashley Lauren Carroll, 31, were arrested Thursday following an undercover Riverside police investigation into possible illegal activity at Baldassarre’s residence in the Orangecrest area of the city.
Along with three counts of possession of controlled substances for sale, the couple is charged with child endangerment and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Several people were waiting for the drop and collected the contents, according to police. The activity prompted investigators to obtain a search warrant, which was served on Baldassarre and Carroll on Thursday morning, Railsback said.
