KEY WEST, Fla.-- Authorities say a mother who mailed drugs to her incarcerated daughter is now an inmate in the same Florida jail.
Monroe County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Becky Herrin said in a news release that a deputy at the jail near Key West found the envelope and noticed it had a chemical smell. He opened the envelope and saw a substance inside.
An incident report says the substance turned out to be Buprenorphine, a synthetic opioid. Deputies arrested 55-year-old Nadine Carroll on Thursday.
Now Carroll is in the same jail as daughter Shannon Carroll.
