Three men were arrested in Carthage Saturday September 11th.
The three were attempting to sneak contraband into the Leake County Correctional Facility by throwing it over the fence that joins McMillan Park and the yard of the jail. They were spotted on camera by Investigator Taylor Parker.
The men had wrapped packages of what is believed to be tobacco and marijuana in burlap and tape and were attempting to throw it over the fence into the yard.
