Married Ex-Cops Convicted of Drug Charges Report to Prison

Married former San Diego Police officers who pleaded guilty to drug charges reported to prison Friday to start their three-year sentences, officials confirm.

Jennifer Charpentier, 42, turned herself in to the Las Colinas Detention Facility, while her husband Bryce, 32, arrived at the San Diego Central Jail.

They admitted in November to running a hydrocodone ring in the county and selling drugs. The couple even resorted to stealing the drug they referred to as "V" in text conversations, swiping it from people like Jennifer's mother, according to a complaint.

They are also accused of burglarizing a home while on the clock to obtain prescription medication.

According to search warrants, Jennifer visited seven different doctors to get 71 prescriptions for seven drugs. She also allegedly moved around to 17 pharmacies to get them filled. Prosecutors say Bryce went as far as the Yosemite area to fill 79 prescriptions from six different doctors.

Jennifer, an 18-year veteran, and Bryce, a 6-year veteran, pleaded guilty to selling and furnishing a narcotic substance, possession of a firearm by an addict, conspiracy to commit a burglary and conspiracy to commit a crime: possession and sale of a controlled substance.

They resigned from the SDPD around the same time.
