A mother and daughter can now spend time together as they were placed in the same jail.
Authorities in Florida, said that the mother mailed drugs to a prison in Key West, where her daughter was jailed.
Becky Herrin, who is the Monroe County Sheriff’s spokesperson, said that a deputy near the jail found the envelope and noticed that it had a chemical smell.
He opened the envelope and saw a substance inside. The substance was tested and it turned out to be Buprenorphine, which is a synthetic opioid.
Deputies went to the home of 55-year-old Nadine Carroll, who sent the package to her daughter, and she was arrested.
Now, Carroll is in the same prison as her daughter, 27-year-old Shannon Carroll.
Records show that Shannon Carroll was arrested on charges of driving with a suspended license and possession of cocaine.
The mother faces charges of smuggling contraband into jail.
