(TERRE HAUTE) - A portion of the Vigo County Jail remained on lock down Sunday night.

Jail officials say a woman tried to sneak some sort of contraband into the jail.

Sheriff Jon Marvel said an inmate managed to put a hole in one of the windows. Then send a string to a woman outside of the jail.

A passerby called 911 after seeing the woman attaching something to the string.
