An effort to smuggle contraband into Beaver Creek Institution in Gravenhurst landed a woman in front of a judge recently.
Appearing in a Bracebridge courtroom, Tiffany Snow pleaded guilty to attempting to smuggle a cell phone to an inmate.
Court heard that Snow arrived for a scheduled visit with an inmate at Beaver Creek but guards became suspicious after they noticed “questionable items” in her car.
Court heard she was taken to a secure facility and searched, where a cell phone was found hidden on her person. She was subsequently arrested and taken into custody.
Crown S. Brown said the situation was particularly concerning, as Beaver Creek has recently been subject to an influx of contraband. That contraband puts both staff and inmates at risk, she said.
Snow was sentenced to a conditional discharge, 12 months probation and ordered not to attend Beaver Creek.
