PUTNAM COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - A Sullivan woman is behind bars after investigators say she tried traffic drugs into the Putnamville Correctional Facility.

Officials with the prison say Christina Pupo was visiting inmate Christopher Webster.

What is Suboxone?

Suboxone contains a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine is an opioid medication, sometimes called a narcotic. Naloxone blocks the effects of opioid medication, including pain relief or feelings of well-being that can lead to opioid abuse.

The prison's Office of Investigations and Intelligence learned that Pupo may attempt to bring drugs into the prison.

That is when they set up surveillance.

While watching her, investigators say Pupo tried to hide what appeared to be Suboxone in some food she bought for Webster.

Prison officials stopped her before she returned to Webster, and started questioning her.

Investigators say Pupo admitted to trafficking drugs in for Webster two different times.

She is currently in the Putnam County Jail.
