1 inmate released from hospital after drug overdose at jail facility

GREENFIELD, Ind. (WISH) – An inmate who overdosed on drugs at the Hancock County Community Corrections facility has been released from the hospital. A second inmate remains hospitalized and a third inmate was arrested for helping get the drugs.

Jail officials say the two inmates were hospitalized after they overdosed on drugs they smuggled into the facility while they were on work release on Sunday.

Medics arrived to the scene and determined the two inmates appeared to have used drugs. The two inmates were taken to Hancock Regional Hospital, according to 24-Hour News 8’s partners at the  Greenfield Daily Reporter.

One of the inmates told police that he used synthetic marijuana after returning from work on Sunday. It wasn’t clear what the other inmate used, but his behavior was consistent with the use of bath salts, police said.

Investigators believe a third inmate, who has been arrested, helped the inmates bring in the drugs.

The names of the inmates were not released.  Police say the inmates will likely face new charges following the investigation.


How to make Apple Pie Tacos

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — It’s dessert … in a taco shell!

Apple Pie Tacos are easy, delicious, and kids love them! 

Apple Pie Tacos

9 soft street-taco shells (see note below)
2 tablespoons raw sugar 
1-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, divided 
5 ROCKIT® apples, skin left on and diced
2 tablespoon raw honey 
1 tablespoon lemon juice 
2 teaspoons cornstarch 
1/4 cup water, plus more
coconut whipped cream 

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. On a plate, sprinkle raw sugar and cinnamon. Gently mix the two together. Spray both sides of the soft taco shells with nonstick cooking spray, then lightly dip both sides in the cinnamon mixture. 
2. Flip a muffin tin over. Place each cinnamon-coated soft taco shell between each of the muffin tins, so that the muffin-tin humps help the taco shell stay in place and formed. Place in the the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Remove and let cool completely. 
3. To make apple filling, combine chopped apples, honey, lemon juice and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a small saucepan. Stir cornstarch into the 1/4 cup water and add to the saucepan. Heat on medium for about 10 minutes until apples are completely softened and gooey-thick. You may need to add more water — about another 1/4 cup — as the apples cook to create a sauce-like mixture. 
4. Spoon the apple filling into each of the taco shells. Top with coconut whipped cream and a sprinkle cinnamon, or a little granola.  Enjoy immediately!

Note: A tortilla that’s about 3-4 inches across works great. If you need to, you can take a larger wheat tortilla, and cookie-cut it using a 3-4 inch small bowl.
