A Baltimore Police Department crime technician was arrested after $100,000 in cash, guns and drugs were seized at her home and in her car, and all criminal cases she worked on are being reviewed.

Timika Jones and her boyfriend, Clarence Jones, have both been charged with felony narcotics possession, intent to distribute and handgun violations, according to a statement issued Thursday afternoon by the Baltimore Police Department.

The large amount of cash and guns, in addition to a capsule machine for packaging drugs, were recovered from Jones’ home. Capsules with what were believe to contain heroin, and additional cash were found in her car.

Jones, who in her duties with the Baltimore Police Department, did not have access to the drug laboratory or storage, police said.

T.J. Smith, a police spokesman, said Jones’ duties involved processing crime scenes, including dusting for fingerprints and taking pictures, according to a report in the Baltimore Sun.

Smith said the police department was in the process of reviewing all of the criminal cases that Jones worked as the technician “out of an abundance of caution.”

Jones was hired by the Baltimore Police Department in the summer of 2015.

Officers raided the Jones’ home, including those from the department’s Office of Professional Responsibility Ethics Section, after receiving a tip that there was drug activity at the home.

Jones was suspended without pay in accordance with department policy.
