Hearing continued for man accused of putting meth in co-worker’s Snapple for sex

screen-shot-2016-12-14-at-4-07-23-pmA preliminary hearing that had been set for Wednesday (December 14) for a Bay Area man accused of putting methamphetamine in a co-worker’s drink to help him “relax and have long lasting sex” has been delayed.

Jose Daniel Calvillorios, 42, of Redwood City, was arrested in August. According to San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe’s summary, on August 8, Calvillorios and another man were working at Torres Auto Repair, at 2905 Flood Avenue. At 8 a.m., the victim bought a Snapple from a food truck and started drinking it. During the next 20 minutes, he sometimes left the drink unattended, and then he started “feeling very warm, nauseous, sweaty,” and numb.

He asked Calvillorios if he’d put something in the drink, but Calvillorios “denied it,” Wagstaffe said. At 5 p.m., the man’s condition got worse and he again confronted Calvillorios, who “then admitted to putting something in his drink to help him relax and so it would permit him to have long lasting sex.”

Calvillorios refused to tell his co-worker what he’d allegedly put in the drink. Eventually, the man went to Stanford Hospital and gave the emergency room doctor a urine sample, which showed methamphetamine was in his system.

Another co-worker reported Calvillorios “admitted to putting something in the victim’s drink to relax and have long lasting sex,” but his “motive remains unclear,” Wagstaffe said.

The sheriff’s office arrested Calvillorios and found a “small amount” of meth and a pipe on him.

Calvillorios, who faces charges of felony food tampering, possession of methamphetamine, and posssession of drug paraphernalia, posted a $100,000 bond August 15 and is out of custody. He couldn’t be reached for comment.

Wednesday, San Mateo Superior Court Judge Lisa Novak granted a motion from the prosecution and defense teams to continue the preliminary hearing in order to examine recently received medical records. The next preliminary hearig date, when a judge will determine whether there’s enough evidence to hold him for trial, is set for January 10.

In a brief call with the Bay Area Reporter Wednesday, Edward Pomeroy, Calvillorios’ attorney, wouldn’t discuss evidence or share his reaction to the charges. Pomeroy said he has “no idea” whether Calvillorios is gay.

A man who answered the phone at Torres Auto Repair said Calvillorios doesn’t work there, and he didn’t know anything about the case.
