  Two men face charges after being caught trying to throw contraband over the fence surrounding one of Mansfield's two prisons. A witness reporting a suspicious vehicle in her driveway called the Richland County Sheriff's office. Deputies arrived to find 19- year-old Kevin bybee of Medina, who said he was waiting for a friend. He tried to get away but was handcuffed. Marijuana was found in the car. Bybee said 20-year-old Tramell Patterson of Lakewood was on the railroad tracks throwing items over the prison fence. Patterson was found walking on Piper Road, and admitted being there to do that. But he placed the items on the tracks instead. The packages were found to contain marjuana, tobacco, and cigars. Both men face misdemeanor charges. It is unclear if Patterson was planning to throw the items onto the grounds of the Mansfield or Richland Correctional Institutions.
