Mom Arrested Smuggling Drugs to Son in Prison

We just saw how a mother bear came to the rescue of her captured cub on video. Loretta Cottey, 53, presents a distinctly human variation of that story after Ohio police arrested her for allegedly attempting to bring drugs to her son in the Warren Correctional Institute.

Police received a tip that Cottey was bringing her son as care package of narcotics and stopped her at the facility. She was found with eight small balloons filled with 2 grams of marijuana, 58 Klonopin tablets, and two $100 bills.

If I was damned of body and soul,
I know whose prayers would make me whole,
Mother o’ mine, O mother o’mine.

  1. my mom is a good woman but she makes alot of bad decisions the pills were my dads and the weed was someone elses she had to do it or someone would have hurted her..

  2. the prison guards don’t want the competition!

    drugs are just as easy to get in prison as on the streets.

    the fremont, California police give drugs to the public…. then sell drugs to the public, then try to buy it back from them or stop them illegally to search your car.

    it happened to me.

  3. i don’t even want to know where she was hiding the eight small balloons.

    How do we know the mom isn’t a drug addict too? Klonopin is a prescription drug. She could have been sharing her stash.
    excellent point

  6. AY,

    I’ve found that sociopaths require enablers as well as victims and that sometimes people serve both functions for them. It is indeed sad that a mother’s love was used to this end.

  7. Wrong post. I meant to say the drug addict priest died in 2008. Can keep all the addicts straight.

    That Mang the Bat sets free–
    The herds are shut in byre and hut,
    For loosed till dawn are we.
    This is the hour of pride and power,
    Talon and tush and claw.
    Oh, hear the call!–Good hunting all

    I feel for her, as she raised a very manipulative bastard that asked his mother to risk herself, for what would a rational mother do? Certainly not what the piece of crap ensues.

    In most states smuggling contraband into a detention facility will gain you 5 years of your life with hard time no early release, because of the status and nature of this.
