CONCORD - Police arrested a Vermont woman for allegedly trying to smuggle drugs into the men's state prison in Concord.
Saturday night, police arrested Sierra Maskell, 30 of Eden Mills, Vt and charged her with conspiracy to introduce articles to prisoners and possession of controlled drugs (narcotics).
After an investigation by State Police and the Department of Corrections, it was learned that Maskell had conspired to smuggle drugs into the men’s prison during a visitor session on April 9. She was arrested prior to her reaching the prison, and allegedly was in control of 74 strips of suboxone, as well as cocaine, ritalin and drug paraphernalia.

The prison value of these drugs is estimated at $23,000, and Maskell is scheduled to be arraigned on June 3.
