3 arrested for attempting to throw contraband into a Cleveland County prison

Mar 24, 2015 | by Lynn Powell

Cleveland County deputies arrested three people Saturday after they allegedly attempted to sneak contraband into the Lexington Correctional Facility. Deputies were sent to check on a suspicious person dressed in all black just after 7 a.m. Saturday on prison property. Three deputies and a K9 searched the area and discovered 41-year-old Jon Adrien Lang in a creek. Lang had a black intact bundle and an black empty package. Deputies also recovered four silver colored bundles in the prison’s security fence. Lang told deputies he had been released from the facility the week before and admitted he was trying to make extra money by throwing contraband into the prison. The bundle recovered contained tobacco, a cell phone, and a Morphine pill.
