California PIA Chief, Folsom Mayor, Arrested

On January 27, 2000, Reggie "party meister" Drew, 57, was arrested in a room at the B-7-B Motel in a seedy industrial area of North Sacramento. Drew was charged with five felony and misdemeanor counts for soliciting an undercover policewoman for unspecified sex acts. Drew allegedly offered to pay for sex with cash and crack cocaine. Drew also faces forfeiture of his pick up truck under a new law allowing for the confiscation of vehicles used to facilitate prostitution and drug crimes.

Drew is employed as chief of quality assurance for the California Prison Industry Authority at the prison complex in Folsom. Drew is paid $74,484 a year by the PIA.

Drew had also been mayor of the city of Folsom since 1996. Drew had given the Folsom city council a "state of the city" address a few hours before his arrest. He resigned as mayor two days after the arrest, after spending the night in jail. Drew had no comment for the media on his arrest. He remains employed by the PIA.
