Flores was arrested when deputies discovered she was wanted on outstanding felony warrants. She was also found with three syringes, two pouches containing suspected methamphetamine, a pill case containing suspected marijuana, a handcuff key and a small knife.

Evans, who accompanied Flores to the jail, was arrested for being a felon on jail grounds and for receiving stolen property. He was in possession of checks that deputies suspect were stolen.

Both visitors were booked into the Kern County Jail.
