A visitor at the Westville Correction Facility was arrested Saturday on charges of attempted trafficking with an inmate and possession of Suboxone, the Indiana Department of Correction said.

According to DOC, Polly Smart of Huntington, Ind., was taken into custody on a visit to her son, inmate Jonathon Smart, after she attempted to traffic 50 “small strips believed to be Suboxone in sealed packages.”

She was transported to LaPorte County Jail.

Jonathon Smart is currently serving three concurrent sentences out of Huntington County for dealing, robbery, and burglary, with an earliest possible release date of Dec. 22, 2019, DOC said. Smart is currently in restricted housing under investigation.

“Staff did an excellent job of working together to prevent the introduction of contraband into the facility,” Superintendent Mark Sevier said. “The facility does not tolerate trafficking, and will prosecute anyone who attempts to do so.”
