New Jersey woman used child drawings to smuggle drugs into jail



A New Jersey woman has been charged with using children's drawings to smuggle drugs to her boyfriend in jail, authorities say.

Casey Giles, 37, faces charges for attempting to smuggle drugs into jail through mail to her boyfriend, Michael Gill, 38, who also faces charges, Somerset County Frank J. Provenzano said Thursday.

A Sheriff's Office K-9, called in to sniff out "oddities" found in the drawing, indicated the presence of Suboxone hidden in the drawings, the sheriff said.

Giles was held in jail on $20,000 bail, cash or bond. Her boyfriend's bail was set at $10,000, cash or bond for attempting to possess a dangerous controlled substance.

Jail officials did not disclose how the drug was concealed in the drawings so as not encourage copycats.
