Erie County Sheriff's Office says an inmate at the Erie County Correctional Facility had a bag of marijuana after a visit.
When Tyrell Brown, 23, was searched by a corrections officer on September 6 at about 10:35 a.m., Erie County Sheriff Timothy Howard says the officer found the marijuana in his sock.
A K9 officer and his partner were called and the K9 made a positive alert on the bag, according to deputies.
The sheriff's office says Brown was already being held on a weapons charge and a parole violation, and is now additionally charged with possessing contraband while in prison and unlawful possession of marijuana.
Brown will appear in front of an Alden Town Justice at a later date.
