Three people were arrested after authorities say a package containing drugs and cellphones was thrown onto the grounds of the Nebraska State Penitentiary.

At about 8 a.m. Tuesday, an 18-year-old man was arrested after he was seen along South 14th Street throwing a package over the wall of the prison, according to the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services. He was not identified. Two other people believed to be involved — Da'Rell Barfield, 21, and Lonique Nelson, 22 — were arrested in a vehicle across the street.

In a news release, the Department of Corrections said the package had tobacco, suspected K2 and two cellphones. The three people arrested are suspected of delivering contraband to a correctional facility and delivery of a controlled substance.
