A Jamestown woman was arrested by State Police after troopers say she tried to sneak drugs into the correctional facility in Collins.

Leslie Rodriguez was arrested last Saturday after authorities say she tried to smuggle 22 Suboxone strips hidden inside a balloon into the facility. The 27-year-old was there to visit an inmate but was stopped in the visitors center of the prison.

She is charged with first degree promoting prison contraband and fifth degree criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell.

After being arraigned, Rodriguez was taken to the Erie County Holding Center on $20,000 bail.
