A woman who was turning herself into the Department of Corrections to begin serving time was busted trying to bring in contraband. According to DepCor spokesperson Jeff Limo, at around 6:30 last night Kala Taitague was self-surrendering; as officers were going to begin a strip search, she went into the restroom apparently to dispose of what was in her possession. Officers apprehended her and retrieved the items from the bathroom.
They confiscated 27 unknown pills and a sandwich bag full of tobacco or snuff. Internal Affairs is conducting an investigation.
