ALBION – A Gasport woman has been charged with promoting prison contraband in the first degree after she allegedly tried to bring drugs into the Orleans County Jail, Sheriff Randy Bower said.

Leah M. McGee, 38, of Gasport on Sunday was visiting an inmate in the jail when corrections officers allegedly confiscated contraband.

“The contraband was field tested by the Deputy Sheriff John Doyle and showed positive results for marijuana and heroin,” Bower said. “The arrests were made based on the diligence of the Corrections Officers that were monitoring the inmate visitation session on the date of the incident.”

An investigation is being conducted and criminal charges are still pending for the inmate that conspired with McGee to introduce the dangerous contraband, Bower said.
