Rosemont Employee Allegedly Ships Pot at Work

Officials haven't yet made any arrests or issued any citations.

An employee of a UPS center in Rosemont shipped a box full of marijuana and then charged the cost to the employer, authorities say.

Sacramento County Sheriff's Department investigators are looking into the Jan. 25 incident, but haven't made any arrests or issued any citations, a spokesperson said Wednesday.

The incident happened on the afternoon of Jan. 25 at 4512 Harlin Ave., just north of Jackson Highway. A web search lists that business as RCR Co., while the sheriff's department and some results list a UPS center there.

According to a sheriff's department crime log, an employee there used the company's account to mail a package "containing marijuana that was packaged to avoid detection."

The package was sent via FedEx, the crime log states.

Sheriff's Department spokesman Sgt. Jason Ramos said Wednesday that the incident hasn't yet resulted in any charges.

"The incident report was forwarded to a detective bureau, to make a determination of any charges. (None have been incurred, as of yet)," Ramos wrote in an email.

Ramos declined to give the employee's name.
