A Brooklyn woman was arrested Saturday and charged with trying to smuggle drugs to her boyfriend inside the Fishkill Correctional Facility, with her 8-year-old daughter in tow, authorities said.
Nicole Nolan, 28, was arrested after she attempted to pass an undisclosed amount of marijuana to her boyfriend Miguel Trinidad, who is serving a six-month sentence for drug possession, State Police said.
Police said Nolan had her daughter with her at the time of her arrest, which followed a "lengthy investigation" by the state Department of Corrections' inspector general's office into drug smuggling at the facility.
Nolan was charged with fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and first-degree promoting prison contraband, both felonies, as well as misdemeanor charges of promoting prison contraband, endangering the welfare of a child and unlawful possession of marijuana. She was taken to Dutchess County Jail on $10,000 cash bail, police said.
Nolan was arraigned by Justice Robert Rahemba in Fishkill Town Court on Saturday, State Police said.
She is due back in town court at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday.
Attempts to reach Nolan were unsuccessful Sunday.
