Bread Stuffed with Drugs Shipped to Inmate
Jun. 16, 1995
WARWICK, N.Y. (AP) _ The bread that came in a care package could have given anybody a high _ and the yeast had nothing to do with it.
Guards at Mid-Orange Correctional Facility found 40 small bags of marijuana, a plastic bag with 10 rocks of crack cocaine and 37 bags of heroin inside the gutted loaves sent to an inmate, said John Van Der Molen, a state police investigator.
He said the guards had scanned the bread in a machine similar to an airport X-ray unit during a routine check of inmates' packages.
Lamont Barnes, the intended recipient, was charged with drug possession. He is serving time for a 1973 murder conviction.
