RUTLAND, Vt. - A Vermont teenager is accused of bringing heroin into the Marble Valley Regional Correctional Facility Thursday morning. 

Vermont State Police say Anthony, Courcelle, 19, of Rutland, Vt., was under the Department of Corrections Field Supervision unit and was in the process of being returned to the prison due to lack of housing. During a routine search, police found a small folded piece of paper containing what appeared to heroin. 

Courcelle is scheduled to appear in Rutland Superior Court Criminal Division in June 23.
