COMSTOCK - A Connecticut woman faces felony charges after she allegedly tried to smuggle drugs and a scalpel into Great Meadow state prison in a tampon, authorities said Tuesday. Cassandra D. Jones, 42, of 100 Cold Springs Road, Rocky Hill, Conn., was visiting an inmate whose name was not released, according to Linda Foglia, a state Department of Corrections spokeswoman.

The 30-year-old inmate is serving time at the maximum security Washington County prison for a murder he committed in New York City. He was incarcerated in October 2000, and he is eligible for parole in 2025, Foglia said. After Jones' arrest, the inmate was placed in solitary confinement but no charges have been filed against him.
