The executive director for a Northern California police union who was charged with attempting to illegally import synthetic opioids from India and other countries has been fired from her job, officials said Friday.
The police association fired her after completing an initial internal investigation, union officials said in a statement.
Segovia came under investigation in late 2022, officials said in a complaint filed by the Northern District of California, U.S. Attorney's Office.
Segovia was first interviewed by federal investigators in February and continued to allegedly order controlled substances after that.
The complaint alleges that Segovia used her personal and office computers to order thousands of opioid and other pills to her home address.
In addition to using her home to receive packages, Segovia allegedly used her office at the San Jose Police Officers' Association to distribute the pills.
According to her LinkedIn page, Segovia was the executive director of the association for over 19 years, beginning in July 2003. »
