JACKSON, Mich. (AP) — Michigan authorities say a man tried to throw a football loaded with drugs and cellphones into the yard of a state prison.
State Trooper Toby Baker says Sunday’s throw in Jackson fell short, with the football landing between two fences, not in the yard where prisoners exercise.
An officer at the G. Robert Cotton Correctional Facility saw the man throw the football, and officers arrested the suspect.
The Detroit Free Press and the Jackson Citizen-Patriot say the ball contained heroin, marijuana, tobacco, three cellphones and chargers.
Christen D. Moore, 22, was arraigned Tuesday on contraband charges and jailed on a $50,000 bond.
