Beaver Dam Woman Accused Of Smuggling Opioids Into County Jail

(Juneau) A Beaver Dam woman is accused of smuggling drugs to an inmate at the Dodge County Detention Facility. Laura Wirth was in court Monday for an initial appearance on one felony charge of Deliver Illegal Articles to an Inmate. In August, jail staff received an anonymous tip than a prisoner was receiving strips of the opioid-drug Suboxone in the mail from Wirth. The tipster said Wirth would cut the bottom flap of a manila envelope with a razor then place the drug inside and seal the envelope back up with a hot iron. Days later, while a jailer was checking incoming mail from Wirth, they allegedly found the drug in the exact same place the caller stated it would be. In talking with investigators, Wirth denied the accusations and said that she does not have Suboxone or use heroin. If convicted, the 19-year-old faces up to three-and-a-half years in prison. Signature bond was set at $1,000 dollars and a judge will decide later this month if there is enough evidence to order a trial.
