Gino Geruntino, WIBX

An inmate at the Oneida County Jail and his girlfriend are facing felony charges after she allegedly tried to sneak methadone into the facility.

Oneida County Sheriff, Rob Maciol, says the incident occurred in January, when Carrie Kessler, 25, of Rome, went to visit Jacob Pope, also 25.

Kessler was able to sneak the pills into the visitation room where she handed them off to Pope, but the pills were found when he was exiting visitation.

Pope, who was serving time for an unrelated crime, is facing felony criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Kessler is charged with criminal sale of a controlled substance, also a felony. She was sent to the Oneida County Jail without bail.
