(Cleveland) - Two employees of the Cuyahoga County Clerk of Courts office got very sick, when they touched mail that was intended for inmates in a state prison.
Cuyahoga County officials say a package filled with envelopes for inmates at a state prison had been delivered to the Clerk of Courts office, as the package was rejected by prison officials, and the return address was the Clerk of Courts office.
Two court employees opened the package. Each said their hands tingled, and their hearts raced. They were checked out at the hospital, and both are okay. The package and its contents have been sent to a lab for testing.
Cleveland.com reports that drug dealers have resorted to delivering drugs to prison inmates by soaking letters in those drugs. Such as case was prosecuted in federal court in Cleveland in 2019.
