A former field representative for San Bernardino County Third District Supervisor James Ramos has been charged with two felonies for smuggling drugs to an inmate housed at the Glen Helen Rehabilitation Center in Devore.

Michael Lipsitz has been charged with two counts of bringing drugs into a jail facility, a felony. The recipient, Joshua Rhodes, has been charged with two counts of possession of drugs in a jail facility, also a felony.

Ramos has been silent since the arrest of Lipsitz by Sheriff’s Deputies.

All media calls to Ramos’ office have have not been returned.

Sheriff John McMahon, apparently a new spokesperson for Ramos, has announced that Ramos terminated Lipsitz as soon as the arrest was made, and that Ramos wouldn’t tolerate such conduct.

Lipsitz posted $25,000 bail. Rhodes remains in custody as an inmate.
