One Ohio woman was recently caught tossing up a loaded Hail Mary.
Janine A. Fulton was arrested and charged with illegal conveyance of drugs for allegedly throwing two Wilson footballs filled with pills, marijuana, cigarettes, cell phones and cell phone chargers over the fence and into the Richland Correctional Institution.
“I was surprised at the amount of contraband and drugs that can be put in a football,” said METRICH Commander Lt. Ken Coontz.
While Ohio Highway Patrol Lt. Mike Kemmer said this was the first time he had seen a football tossed into the prison, it’s not uncommon for objects to be thrown over the fence due to the large perimeter. Kemmer told the Bucyrus Telegraph Forum that authorities recover an estimated 90 percent of contraband before it gets into the correctional facility.
Fulton has a history with contraband in prisons. According to Coontz, Fulton used to work as a corrections officer but was fired for finding a prisoner with contraband and letting him keep it.
Coontz said two inmates may also face charges.
