ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - A woman accused in a conspiracy to bring drugs into the Metro Detention Center in potato chips bags was in court Saturday.
Alysha Taverez is facing a total of five charges.
APD says Tavarez and her inmate boyfriend, Jonathan Danielson, worked together with two other people to get an employee to bring in suboxone to the lockup.
The drug is commonly used by heroin addicts.
Investigators say Taverez paid the contract worker $120 to hand off the drugs to Danielson in chip bags.
Danielson was in jail for an outstanding warrant. The MDC worker has not been charged.
