TCSO: Irish Mob gangster arrested for trying to smuggle drugs into jail
TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) —
The Tulsa County Sheriff's Office says a gang member is in custody after he tried to smuggle drugs into the Tulsa County Jail.
Deputies served a search warrant at a home Thursday morning and arrested 47-year-old Jason Wood. The sheriff's office says jail employees recently discovered that someone was trying to smuggle drugs into the Tulsa County Jail, and the investigation reportedly led back to Wood.
The sheriff's office says Wood never successfully got any drugs into the jail. It's not clear what drugs he allegedly tried to smuggle in.
Wood is a member of the Irish Mob gang, according to the sheriff's office. He was arrested for a shooting with intent to kill charge earlier this year, but he was later released.
Deputies say they found several guns and a large number of drugs during a search of Woods' home.
