An investigation is underway after a Carmel Valley parent accused of running an illicit drug operation. The parent’s clientele was reportedly made up of students who attended local high schools, including Cathedral City High School.
Official documents state that Kimberly Dawn Quach faces 37 counts of selling or offering controlled substances to minors. The types of substances include Xanax, Suboxone and marijuana.
A letter sent by Principal Kevin Calkins to parents relates that several CCHS families have been contacted by San Diego Police as well as the District Attorney’s Office as part of their investigation.
An excerpt of the letter reads as follows:
In an effort to keep you informed and prevent the spread of misinformation through social media and the Internet, I want to alert you to an issue that affects our Cathedral Catholic High School community.
Recently, the parent of a CCHS student was arrested and charged with the sale and possession of illegal drugs and other controlled substances. The investigation that triggered that arrest is ongoing and affects Cathedral Catholic and other high schools in the area.
As part of their investigation, San Diego Police and the District Attorney’s Office told us that they have contacted a number of CCHS families this week to ask for their help. Officers working the case believe there are CCHS students who may be witnesses or who may have information that would assist their investigation.
Quach is due back in court on November 29th.
