Job Zoller now faces drug trafficking charges. It is unclear who is responsible for stashing the drugs outside the courthouse.
Zoller was in court for an unrelated hearing.
The way the inmates are transported from the transport van to the court, there is a few seconds when the first few inmates in the line are outside alone while a deputy from the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office remains inside to watch the inmates still in the back hallway of the courthouse. Zoller, a frequent visitor to jail and Magistrate Court according to records, apparently knew this and knew he’d have a couple seconds to get the stash.
