MADISON — A Searsport man was arrested after Somerset County sheriff’s deputies said he allegedly had someone smuggle him drugs while he was inside Somerset County Jail.
Tyson Servisky, a 32-year-old inmate at the jail, was charged with two counts of trafficking in prison contraband and 43 counts of violating conditions of release, according to a statement from Sheriff Dale Lancaster.
The statement said Suboxone strips were sent through the mail to Servisky in parcels made to look like they were from his lawyer.
Police said a search executed on packages on June 3 and 4 turned up Suboxone strips hidden inside business cards.
The statement said Taylor Hustus, 28, of Searsport allegedly sent the packages to Servisky. Police said Hustus has been summoned for two counts of trafficking in prison contraband.
Lancaster said attempting to get illegal substances inside the jail is a felony and that the sheriff’s office will “aggressively investigate and pursue” people responsible for this kind of behavior.
