A woman is being summonsed to court after she allegedly smuggled Suboxone into MCI Concord and handed it off to a prisoner there.
The woman also reportedly had two children with her, and the state Department of Children and Families was called, according to Department of Correction officials in a news release.
An officer allegedly found an inmate with a package that had eight strips of Suboxone inside around 2:31 p.m. on Saturday, and authorities said he’d been given the package by the woman, who was visiting him.
Police decided to issue the summons to the woman because she had the children with her, according to the release. State police also found that her vehicle had incorrect license plates attached, and it was towed.
“Suboxone can sell for as much as $200 per strip at MCI Concord,” the release said.
