PLATTSBURGH — A Plattsburgh woman was charged Tuesday with promoting prison contraband.
Kimberly M. Laroe, 30, an inmate at the Clinton County Jail illegally accepted four morphine pills during a jail visit with her mother, Victoria Curry, 53, and Laroe’s infant son, the Clinton County Sheriff’s Department said in a news release.
Laroe swallowed the pills to prevent officers from cataloging them as evidence and further investigation revealed that Laroe had conspired with Curry before the visit to exchange the pills, the Sheriff’s Department said.
Laroe was charged with first-degree promoting prison contraband, a felony; tampering with physical evidence, a felony; endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor, and fifth-degree conspiracy, a misdemeanor.
Curry was charged with first-degree promoting prison contraband, a felony, and endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor.
Both women are scheduled to appear in Plattsburgh Town Court at a later date to answer to their charges.
