PUTNAM, N.Y. – Putnam County deputy sheriffs arrested three county jail inmates on multiple drug charges last week week after they were accused of sneaking contraband into the jail, authorities said.

Ceferino Garcia, 36, Daremus Reynolds, 35, and Frank Pasqua Jr., 36, were charged after a search of the jail on March 28 as officers were suspicious that drugs were being smuggled into the jail by an outsider during a visit, authorities said.

Heroin, suboxone and other drugs were found both on inmates and in their cells, authorities said.

All three inmates were charged with varying degrees of criminal possession of a controlled substance and first-degree promotion of prison contraband, authorities said.

Garcia and Reynolds were remanded back to the jail on $10,000 bail, while Pasqua's bail was set at $100,000, authorities said.
