BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Several inmates at the St. Johnsbury Work Camp were hospitalized this weekend after taking an unknown chemical drug.

That's the word from the Corrections Department. It's believed the drug was smuggled into the facility. State Police are investigating and say several people got very sick. The department says at least three were showing signs of intoxication. They were cleared by the hospital and returned to the facility where they are still under observation. Investigators say some tobacco was seized. It's now being tested in a lab to see if it was laced with the substance.
