DEDHAM, Mass. --A man is accused of smuggling drugs into the Norfolk County Correctional Center in Dedham.

Correction officers say a man snuck 200 suboxone strips into jail by swallowing them.

The drugs were confiscated and the man is now being held in a dry cell.

We're told the strips are worth around $50,000 behind bars.

Just a few weeks ago, Boston 25 News anchor Blair Miller went inside the Bristol County Detention Center to see the unbelievable ways prisoners are trying to sneak-in dangerous contraband.

To get around that, the jail is doing away with face-to-face visits.
