Mom brought drugs to jailed son


ALFRED — A 45-year-old Maine woman is facing charges that she smuggled drugs to her jailed son.

The York County Sheriff’s Department said a corrections officer at the county jail saw Lisa Croteau, of Arundel, secretly pass something to her son while she was visiting him on Sunday. A search of Joshua Croteau allegedly turned up a balloon containing a marijuana cigarette and Suboxone, a drug used to treat opiate addiction.

Jail officials say when they went to the jail parking lot to tell Lisa Croteau’s husband of the arrest, they charged him with marijuana possession.
