2 women charged, accused of smuggling contraband into Lincoln prison
Two women face charges stemming from allegations they smuggled contraband into a Lincoln prison.
Authorities arrested 27-year-old Dana Johnson, an employee at the Lincoln Correctional Center, for unlawful acts by a corrections employee.
Investigators said in court documents that Johnson brought contraband - including cell phones and drugs - to multiple inmates. Johnson admitted to delivering a package to one inmate in return for $700 from the inmates wife, according to an arrest affidavit.
A judge set Johnson's bond at $10,000.
An NDCS spokesperson told Channel 8 Eyewitness News Monday that Johnson was still an employee.
Authorities also charged 56-year-old Susan Johnson for an attempt of a class four felony.
Investigators said in court documents Johnson, a visitor, admitted she was trying to deliver two duct-taped packages of marijuana to her husband when she was intercepted by staff at the Lincoln Correctional Center.
A search of her purse turned up a similar package of suspected marijuana, according an arrest affidavit.
A judge set Johnson's bond at $3,000. She entered a plea of not guilty.
A mugshot of Susan Johnson was not available.
