Elyria – An Elyria woman appeared in Elyria Municipal Court this morning after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers arrested her yesterday for attempting to convey drugs into the Lorain Correctional Institution.

Troopers charged Stacie M. Smith, 25, with attempting to convey drugs onto the grounds of a detention facility, a third-degree felony and possession of criminal tools, a fifth-degree felony.

Troopers and Department of Rehabilitation and Correction investigators obtained information that Smith would attempt to convey drugs to her boyfriend, an inmate, during a scheduled visit. Smith was arrested after a consent search revealed balloons containing a total of three grams of marijuana and one gram of cocaine concealed on her person.

Smith was incarcerated in the Lorain County Jail. If convicted, she could face up to six years in prison and a $12,500 fine.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol investigates criminal activity on state owned and leased property.
