Two Pomona Park women have been charged with attempting to smuggle illegal narcotics into the Putnam County jail.
The charges are the result of a criminal investigation initiated after narcotics were found in mail intended for a Putnam County jail inmate, deputies said. During a routine screening of all incoming and outgoing inmate mail, correctional officers said they found illegal narcotics in multiple pieces of mail to one particular inmate.
