MAYVILLE, N.Y. (WIVB) — The Chautauqua County Sheriff’s office says a Jamestown woman tried to bring fentanyl into the county’s jail facility.

A bulletin shared by the county pertains to an incident authorities say took place on September 21. That afternoon, the Sheriff’s office says Jena Blocker, 36, was conspiring with 30-year-old inmate Brent Robbins in an attempt to bring in narcotics.

She was subsequently arraigned on charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance, promoting prison contraband and conspiracy. Robbins was arraigned on a charge of conspiracy.
