The Orleans Parish Sheriff's Office says it caught three men trying to break into jail to deliver drugs Monday night, and arrested one, according to a report from WWL-TV and The New Orleans Advocate.

Nicholas Celius, age 23, was found near the jail with a backpack full of crack and heroine, according to authorities. Two others spotted trying to scale a wall surrounding the jail compound remain unidentified and at large.

Sheriff Marlin Gusman says this event shows the constant battle that is being waged to keep contraband out of the prison.
