Kids throw contraband package over prison fence

AP Wire • Jul 21, 2015 at 11:20 AM

The Branch County Sheriff’s Office said an adult brought three juveniles from Eaton Rapids on Thursday night to train them for future deliveries at Lakeland Correctional Center. A statement released today didn’t describe what was in the package.

The Sheriff’s Office said the juveniles were released to their parents. Charges likely will be filed after deputies found drugs in the car.

The prison and state police will investigate the contraband package. It’s likely that inmates at Lakeland were aware of the planned delivery.
