LOWVILLE — Two people were charged Thursday in connection with cigarette butts and matches discovered at the Lewis County jail.

Lewis County sheriff’s deputies charged Sharon Lyng, 58, Watertown, with introducing dangerous contraband into a detention facility, while Justin Branagan, 34, an inmate at the facility, was charged with possessing dangerous contraband while at a detention facility. Both were arraigned in Village Court, with Mr. Branagan returned to jail and Ms. Lyng released on her own recognizance.

Deputies said a corrections officer on May 25 observed Ms. Lyng pass the items to Mr. Branagan during a visitation period.
