MISSISSIPPI COUNTY, MO (KFVS) - Deputies say a southern Illinois man is accused of mailing pot to the Mississippi County Detention Center.
Lenard Duncan, 30, of Mound City was charged with distribution of a controlled substance.
"There's a never ending struggle between inmates who seek out contraband and corrections staff who work to keep contraband out of jail," said Sheriff Keith Moore.
Deputies found a letter full of marijuana wrapped in a bank statement and other document addressed to Duncan.
According to Sheriff Moore, Duncan had been an inmate and shared a cell with the person the letter was sent to.
Duncan was booked into the detention center under $25,000 bond.
