GP Police Jailed Corrections Client for Trying to Cheat on Mandatory Drug Test

Grants Pass Police jailed a Josephine County Community Corrections client this week who attempted to cheat on a mandatory urine test.

The Police Department reports officers were called to the Community Corrections Office on NW 4th Street on Wednesday.

Police said 43-year-old Peter Anthony Rivera was in possession of someone else's urine in a container that he was using to provide his corrections officer with a false urine sample. He was required to provide the urine sample to show that he was not using any drugs.

Rivera eventually admitted that his intention was to cover up recent drug use. He was placed into custody and the urine container was seized as evidence.

Peter Rivera was lodged at the Josephine County Jail for Falsifying Drug Test Results and a Felony Parole Violation stemming from previous convictions for Felon in Possession of a Restricted Weapon, 1st-Degree Rape, 2nd-Degree Assault, Disorderly Conduct and Criminal Trespass. He was held without bail.
