Woman accused of smuggling drugs into prison
A Tulsa woman was jailed and charged with smuggling drugs into the Lawton Correctional Facilities.
Stephanie Lashae Mills, 26, made her initial appearance Tuesday in Comanche County District Court where she received a felony charge of bringing contraband into a penal institution, records indicate. The crime is punishable by between one and five years in prison.
Lawton Police Officer Albert Nease reported going shortly after 1:30 p.m. Saturday to the prison, 8607 SE Flower Mound, on the report of a visitor bringing contraband into the facility.
A corrections officer said he’d been monitoring an inmate and a visiting woman, “due to their suspicious behavior during their visit,” the report states. The two were seen scanning the room to see if staff members were looking at them and then the woman, Mills, would put her left hand down her pants as if she was about to retrieve something, the officer told Nease. She did this multiple times.
