Investigators implicated four more people Friday in a purported scheme to smuggle drugs into the Santa Fe County jail.

Sheriff’s detectives charged Lucy Favela, 59, her son Manuel Favela, 33, Jaime Armijo, 33, and Brian Hayden, 31, with bringing contraband into a place of imprisonment and conspiracy.

Jail staff monitoring inmate phone calls earlier this month reported suspicions that a visitor would attempt to smuggle contraband into the facility, according to court documents.
