What Two Women Learned Not Hide in Underwear For Prison Visit
So you are going to visit a friend or family member in prison. Did you know that there is a list of items that you cannot bring with you? Two women apparently did not get or did not read a copy of the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision Check List for visitors. In it, it says that 'Offenders,' (that is the word that they use to refer to the person who is locked up) are not allowed to take anything from the visiting area.
Two women who were visiting the Ulster Correctional Facility in Napanoch apparently were not familiar with the what they could and what they could not do regulations. Both women entered the facility, according to the State Police in Ellenville, to visit two inmates. Allegedly the visits were going well, until the women tried to give their "offenders" an item that they had smuggled into the prison in their underwear. Yes, their underwear. What they had wanted to give to their 'offender' was suboxone.
According to EverydayHealth.com:
Suboxone is a prescription medication that combines buprenorphine and naloxone. It's used to treat opioid addiction.
The two women will now be discussing with a judge as to why they thought they could smuggle the suboxone into jail hidden in their underwear later this month.
