SMUGGLING DRUGS INTO JAIL
Troopers said Quaina Cole, 27, was charged with conveying drugs into a correctional facility, a third-degree felony.
Troopers and Department of Rehabilitation and Correction investigators developed information that Cole might attempt to deliver drugs into the Lorain Correctional Institution. She was observed passing the drugs to an inmate during her visit and was taken into custody. Troopers recovered six balloons containing three grams of marijuana.
Cole was incarcerated at the Lorain County Jail. If convicted, she could face up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
