Meth-infused letters sent to Maplehurst, Kitchener woman charged


Police say more charges are pending against a Kitchener woman, as she was allegedly trafficking crystal meth into a Milton prison.

Regional Police started investigating back in March, after they got word methamphetamine was somehow getting into the Maplehurst Correctional Complex.

Staff at the prison had gone through inmate letters, and believed they were infused with the drug.

WRPS seized those letter for analysis, and determined they did in fact contain traces of meth.

Through further investigation, a 33-year-old Kitchener woman was arrested and faces charges including trafficking.

Police say their investigation is ongoing, and more charges may be laid.
