COLUMBUS, OHIO — A milk deliveryman was delivering much more than milk, apparently, during his visits to an Ohio prison.

Ray Adams worked with an inmate at Lebanon Correctional Facility to facilitate the smuggling  of marijuana, tobacco and cellphones inside half-pint milk cartons, according to the Associated Press.

Fifty-year-old Adams made thousands of dollars sneaking the items into the facility over time, according to the county prosecutor, but was arrested and charged in January.

It’s a very sad situation, according to Doug Longenette, director of HR at United Dairy, who said the family-owned business would never condone such activity.
