Mission Bay Sports Center owner accused in meth ring

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The owner of the Mission Bay Sports Center was among nine people charged Friday with operating a local methamphetamine ring in which large amounts of the drug were allegedly distributed out of the business, which hosts a summer youth program.

Center owner Jason Boone, the alleged ringleader of the operation, is charged with 15 counts, including transportation, sale and possession of meth.

Boone, 40, faces eight years in state prison if convicted.

Officers found a loaded handgun in Boone's home and 1 1/2 pounds of the drug in his car, said Deputy District Attorney Jorge Del Portillo.

Undercover officers also purchased a half-pound of meth during the "Operation Boone's Farm" investigation, which determined that lockers at the Sports Center were allegedly being utilized as a drop location for drug deliveries and payments between suppliers and customers.

Also charged in the case are Susie Macias, 39; Spencer Edmonds, 32; Vincent Garcia, 41; Jacqueline Miller, 32; Joe Bean, 52; Michael Gifford, 41; Janelle Shryock, 21; and Tamara Delar, 20.

Boone, Macias and Gifford pleaded not guilty at their arraignments Friday and had their bail set at $500,000.
