Police: Woman attempted to deliver drugs to murder suspect

She called to let him know she was outside with the package. The meeting had been arranged earlier in the day, and now 21-year-old Skye A. Sedillo sat in a car on a road near the San Miguel County Detention Center, waiting for a corrections officer to come retrieve the package.

The envelope she’d brought contained 6.1 grams of methamphetamine, 6.4 grams of heroin, injection needles, a lighter and a couple cigarettes, according to court records. Sedillo and others arranged for the jail guard to sneak the package inside the facility, according to police. Once inside, it would be delivered to Roger Tait-Gomez, one of two men charged with an open count of murder in the first degree for the July 6 shooting death of 16-year-old Adelina Tafoya.

Arrangements for the delivery began earlier that day, Monday, Aug. 10, when Kevin DeHerrera, an inmate being held on drug distribution charges, asked a corrections officer if he’d like to make some extra money by sneaking contraband into the jail, according to court records. The plan was simple: Sedillo would call him and arrange a time to drop off a package, the corrections officer would pick up the package, then sneak it into the jail. The officer would deliver it to DeHerrera, and DeHerrera would pay him for his services.
