DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. - A woman is facing felony charges after she allegedly attempted to sneak drugs to an inmate at the Fishkill Correctional Facility.

On Tuesday, New York State Police announced that Brittany Shay, 39, of Newburgh was arrested by troopers from the Wappinger barracks over the weekend and charged with felony counts of promoting prison contraband and criminal possession of a controlled substance.

According to police, a joint investigation into Shay determined that she brought suboxone into the prison with the intent to provide it to an inmate. New York State Police were assisted by the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision Office of Special Investigations.

Shay was arraigned before Judge Frederick Romig in the Town of East Fishkill Court and released on her own recognizance. She is due back in court on Wednesday.
