Sweet Granny In Illinois Arrested For Sending Care Packages To Inmates
In today's news that makes you go "huh?" we have a woman from Illinois, possibly somebody's grandmother, who sent care packages to people in jail. How sweet, right? Wrong! It turns out the gifts were not favorable to the jails' rules. Yes, it was multiple jails, according to police.
I mean, let's be real, we've all heard of the occasional "a stash in a hollow bible" trick, but this takes things to a whole new level. But this kind of care packages are these? I can only imagine the conversation with the inmates,
Oh, thanks for the cookies, but do you have any speed?

I have to hand it to the woman though, she was creative and very generous. I bet those inmates were thrilled to receive those care packages. Until they got caught, that is. You see, care packages are perfectly fine as long as they don't contain amphetamines.
I can't help but wonder what was going through this woman's head. Did she really think this was a good idea? Did she not realize that drugs are, you know, illegal? I can only imagine the look on her face when she got caught.
Oh, these drugs? I had no idea they were in there! I just thought the inmates might like a little pick-me-up.
Yeah, sure you did.

All kidding aside, this is obviously a serious issue. It's incredibly illegal. So, if you're thinking about sending care packages to prison, maybe stick to the basics. A nice note, some snacks, maybe a magazine. Leave the drugs at home.
