October 20, 2009

Officials said 11 grams of heroin were brought to Roxbury Correctional Institution on Monday, and because of the amount, it is believed the heroin was going to be distributed, according to court records.

A Gywnn Oak, Md., woman admitted to bringing the contraband into the facility along Sharpsburg Pike south of Hagerstown in hopes of passing it to an inmate, Washington County District Court records show.

Carla Renee Davis, 49, of 3800 Sylvan Drive, was charged with possession of contraband in a place of confinement and other charges, according to court records.

The heroin was found as a K-9 officer was conducting "scans" on visitors at Roxbury Correctional Institution at 1:25 p.m., court records show.
