WARSAW, N.Y. (AP) - Prison officials say they uncovered three separate plans to sneak drugs to inmates at the Wyoming Correctional Facility by listening to inmates’ phone conversations.

Wyoming County District Attorney Donald O’Geen unsealed three indictments Friday that charge a total of five inmates and five others with promoting or attempting to promote prison contraband at the western New York facility.

O’Geen says in one case an inmate’s mother is charged with trying to bring her son cocaine and hydrocodone during a visit. The other cases involved synthetic marijuana and suboxone strips.

Prosecutors say all of the plans were revealed in phone calls between inmates and their callers.
