(Newser) – Someone, somewhere, must be unaware jail officials screen mail before handing it over to inmates. While checking the post at Virginia's Western Tidewater Regional Jail last week, officials came across a homemade card with the gift of heroin inside, WTKR reports. This was no isolated incident: Officials have recently intercepted two other mailed items they believe contained drugs. One of the items definitely held heroin; the contents of the other are being tested. Authorities haven't revealed who the mail was addressed to, or if all pieces were meant to reach the same person. No arrests yet. (This ranks among the craziest jailhouse smuggling attempts.)
