Drug investigators are trying to find out who mailed an envelope containing heroin to a Spokane County Jail inmate earlier this week.
A mail clerk at the jail noticed a suspicious bulge in the envelope, Sheriff’s Lt. David Wiyrick said. When the envelope was opened, a material thought to be a controlled substance was spotted, Wiyrick said.
A drug test determined that the substance was black tar heroin.
Delivering a controlled substance to the jail is a felony with a sentence of up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
