CONWAY, N.H. — A corrections officer has been indicted, accused of bringing a bag of methamphetamine into a New Hampshire county jail.

WMUR-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2ucVgya ) that Zina Ryan, who worked in Carroll County, has been indicted by a grand jury. She resigned last month after a supervisor allegedly uncovered the drug while searching her purse.

Carroll County Sheriff Domenic Richardi says it does not seem that any drugs made it to inmates at the county jail.

Superintendent Jason Henry said Ryan had been working for three years. He said she was a hard worker and well-liked by staff.

It was not immediately known if she had a lawyer, and a phone number couldn’t be found for her.
