Two Rochester men were arrested in Pennsylvania on drug and conspiracy charges for planning to smuggle contraband into a correctional facility.
Ricardo Ismanuel Matos, 25, and another unidentified 25-year-old man were arrested in North Beaver Township, Pennsylvania, after crashing Saturday.
Police say they found bundles containing 34 new cell phones, chargers, knives, and tobacco. Investigators say those bundles were disguised to look like snow, and the plan was to throw them over the prison fence, into a recreational area where inmates would retrieve them.
Investigators did not say what prison Matos and the unidentified man were going to.
The investigation is going.
