Seven Indicted in Jail Drug Smuggling Ring

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- A drug smuggling operation is uncovered at the Louisville jail. 

The Metro Corrections Department says seven people were indicted on charges that include engaging in organized crime and drug trafficking.  They're accused of smuggling heroin, marijuana and other drugs into the jail.   

 A Metro Corrections spokesman says the suspects include inmates and a former employee of a jail commissary vendor.  

The indictments were the result of a months-long investigation by the jail and the Metro Police Public Integrity Unit.   

Corrections Director Mark Bolton says the investigation remains active and it's "likely not the end of the story."
