Couple accused of sneaking drugs into jail

Couple charged with taking drugs into Trumbull County Jail.

WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – A Warren woman and a Niles man are accused of trying to sneak drugs into the Trumbull County Jail.

Stephanie Ziegler, 25, of Warren, and Shane A. Brown, 26, of Niles, were indicted this week by a grand jury.

Reports state that in March a corrections officer at the jail intercepted an opiate that had been mailed to Brown. Officials determined the drugs had come from Ziegler.

Ziegler is charged with bringing drugs onto a governmental facility. Brown is charged with complicity to the same crime.

Both suspects are due in court next month.
