Two Women Accused of Bringing Drugs into Mid-State Correctional in Marcy
Nearly 100 grams of synthetic marijuana and 130 slips of Suboxone were confiscated from visitors to Mid-State Correctional Facility over the Easter weekend, according to a release from the New York State Correctional Officers P.B.A.
Authorities say two women, who were at the facility to visit two separate inmates, were caught trying to sneak the drugs in on March 31, 2018, but were foiled by a K9 who alerted staff after apparently detecting the drugs.
Natalia Mazzuca, 25, of Kinston, NY was allegedly found to be in possession of 64.5 grams of synthetic marijuana, or K2.
April Temple, also 25 and from Kingston, was allegedly found in possession of two packages - one containing 35.3 grams of K2 and 130 slips of prescription Suboxone celluloid strips.
Each is charged with a felony count of Promoting Prison Contraband in the 1st degree, and misdemeanor charge of Reckless Endangerment.
Temple was also charged with an additional felony of Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance, fifth degree.
Both were arraigned on the charges and sent to Oneida County Jail, authorities said.
