NEW CASTLE, Ind. — A Dearborn County woman is accused of bringing drugs into the New Castle Correctional Facility with the intention of giving them to an inmate.

Samantha Meyer-Bruner, 36, of Aurora, Ind., is accused of bringing a package of meth into the prison Jan. 10 when visiting an inmate, said the Indiana Department of Correction.

Jail officers found the meth and Meyer-Bruner was arrested. She faces preliminary charges of trafficking with an inmate, dealing methamphetamine, and conspiracy of dealing methamphetamine.

Warden Mark Sevier said, “Trafficking of any nature can create hazards for other offenders as well as our hard-working employees. We do not tolerate trafficking of any substance into our facilities and will aggressively work to prosecute any person who traffics to the fullest extent possible.”
