Jazmine Greer, illegal conveyance of weapons

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — Bond was set at $15,000 for a Richmond Heights attorney following her arraignment in municipal court by Judge Renee DiSalvo on charges that she tried to smuggle drugs to an inmate in the private prison on the East Side.

Jazmine Greer, 40, is in the Mahoning County Jail on a charge of illegal conveyance of drugs into a detention facility, a third-degree felony. She was arrested just before 5 p.m. by police who were called to the Northeast Ohio Correctional Center on Hubbard Road.

Reports said staff at the prison had checked some documents Greer had bought to the prison to drop off to an inmate and several of the pages were discolored and it appeared that something had been splattered on them.

Reports said staff at the prison did a drug test on the documents that found a cannabinoid.

Greer told staff that she was unaware the documents had been tampered with, reports said. Reports said she told the staff she was supposed to leave the documents with the inmate.
