A Mansfield woman is charged with trying to smuggle marijuana and tobacco into the Richland County Jail. On May 1, the Richland County Sheriff's Office, working in conjunction with the Richland County Prosecutor's Office discovered a plot to smuggle contraband into the jail. On the morning of May 7, detectives intercepted the courier, who had placed the contraband in a trash can inside the men's restroom of the Mansfield Municipal Court. That contraband included four bags containing tobacco and packages of what appeared to be marijuana. That evidence was then turned over to the crime lab. Investigators say an inmate was supposed to retrieve the package and smuggle it into the jail. Detectives then executed a search warrant at 115 1/2 Lind Avenue -- the residence of Lori White-Cortez -- to obtain additional contraband. Detectives and deputies discovered and seized additional marijuana, packaging materials matching that seized during the drop, and two handguns. All of those items were turned into the crime lab. An arrest warrant was then issued for White-Cortez. She was arrested Tuesday at a relative's house in the 400 block of South Diamond Street in Mansfield. White-Cortez is charged with Attempted Illegal Conveyance onto the Grounds of a Detention Facility any Drug of Abuse, a third-degree felony. She is incarcerated in the Richland County Jail, awaiting an initial court appearance and establishment of bond. The investigation is continuing. The case will be presented to the Richland County Grand Jury, where additional suspects may be charged.
