CLEVELAND COUNTY, Okla. – Three Oklahomans are accused of introducing contraband into a prison.

According to the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office, on Saturday, deputies went to check on a suspicious person near the Lexington Correctional Facility.

When they arrived, deputies found 41-year-old Jon Lang.

Lang reportedly told deputies that he was released from the correctional facility last week.

Deputies also found four silver-colored bundles containing tobacco, a cell phone, and a Morphine pill in the prison’s security fence.

Officials say Lang later admitted that he was trying to make extra money by throwing contraband into the prison.

While deputies were talking to Lang, prison officials told them that the vehicle that dropped Lang off was driving away from the prison.

Another deputy pulled the vehicle over and identified the driver as Lang’s wife, 39-year-old Michelle Lang.  The passenger was identified as 29-year-old Juan Martinez.

Jon Lang, Michelle Lang, and Juan Martinez were all arrested on complaints of introduction of contraband into a penal system.

The Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office says all three alleged suspects were booked into the detention center.
