Clovis, NM - After attempting to smuggle drugs into the Curry County Jail, a Clovis man will spend four more years in prison.

35-year-old Paul Apodaca was convicted and sentenced today from an incident that occurred last October.

A Curry County Detention Officer noticed suspicious activity after a woman was seen going in and out of the jail's lobby restroom.

A balloon filled with cocaine, marijuana, tobacco and prescription drugs was later discovered by the detention officer.
