Nadia Lockyer Found with Meth, Drug Paraphernalia in So Cal

The former Alameda County supervisor was arrested last week on drug and child endangerment charges, according to reports.

Former Alameda County supervisor Nadia Lockyer’s personal continues to unfold in the public eye with news of her arrest last week in Orange County.

According to the Bay Area News Group, Lockyer, 41, faces drug and child-endangerment charges stemming from an arrest on Aug. 28.

The estranged wife of State Treasurer Bill Lockyer was visiting a relative with her 9-year-old son when authorities received a tip that she may have drugs with her, BANG reports.

Police followed up on the tip and found Lockyer in possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia, including burnt aluminum foil, according to the report.

An Orange County District Attorney’s Office spokesperson told reporters that Lockyer showed signs of being under the influence.

She was charged with felony drug possession and three misdemeanors, including child abuse and endangerment, according to BANG.

The child abuse and endangerment charge was filed because the drugs were found in a room Lockyer shared with her son.

BANG reports that Lockyer pleaded not guilty on Aug. 30 in an Orange County court and was released to a rehab center.

Lockyer is scheduled for a pretrial hearing on Monday, according to BANG.

Rarely do I fine a worthwhile comment on the Patch. But Maria Dingoe you hit a home run with yours. This Lockyer couple exposes the true culture of our depraved ruling class and futher evidence of this nation's decline. I am also sad. No not for those two, just the rest of us.

That's the sad truth of the whole Nadia and Bill Lockyer story in a nutshell. It's more a product of the "machine politics" of California when you get right down to it.

Perhaps this is another cry in the Wilderness for "Term Limits" and a prohibition from skipping from one government job to another---like a career flier fly. It surely seems like Lockyer "the Elder" has been around California politics since the Spanish American War-----Wait a minute , that's where he is at right now........

These types of stories are actually very old, old stories, folks. We just hear about them more frequently these days because we communicate faster than when the Pony Express delivered the news.
