Woman, inmate charged after suspected heroin is intercepted
HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Authorities say a woman and an inmate have been charged after a county detention center in North Carolina intercepted a quantity of suspected heroin concealed in an incoming U.S. Postal Service parcel.
A Henderson County Sheriff’s Office Facebook post says detectives identified 24-year-old Carissa Alexis Jones as the supplier of three parcels of suspected heroin addressed to 31-year-old Jeremiah Dockins as a result of a criminal investigation initiated by the detention center and others.
A search warrant at Jones’ Arden residence was executed Tuesday. Authorities say quantities of marijuana, suspected heroin, drug paraphernalia, and several items of evidence directly linking Jones to the intercepted parcels were seized.
Authorities say Jones and Dockins were both charged with multiple felony counts of conspiracy to sell/deliver heroin, among other offenses.
It’s unclear if they have lawyers.
