(Scroll down for video) Police were called to a drug treatment center in California, after a few people tested positive for drugs.

The people were staying at the Visalia Recovery Center, which is a treatment facility for parolees who have drug problems.

They all undergo testing and must stay clean for a certain amount of time before they can be released and returned to their families.

However, one day while testing four clients, they tested positive for drugs.

Damon Maurice with the Visalia Police Department said that the clients denied using any drugs and claimed that they must have been drugged by the facility staff.

The clients demanded an investigation and police arrived.

Detectives reviewed surveillance videos and to everyone’s surprise, they discovered that drugs were added to peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

Police arrested two men who were workers of the drug facility. Levi Strong, 25, and Miguel Jimenez, 22, were given the job to prepare peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch and they laced the food with methamphetamine.

“They took out a baggie with the drugs, mixed the meth with some water, heated it up in a microwave and poured it into the peanut butter for the sandwiches,” Maurice said.

Strong and Jimenez were charged with felonies for poisoning and violating parole.
