LANCASTER, SC (AP) Deputies in Lancaster County have arrested a Kershaw woman they say used two Bibles to try to smuggle weapons, drugs and a cell phone to a prison inmate.
Sheriff Barry Faile said Monday authorities began investigating 28-year-old Shareca Latoya Jones earlier this month after a package mailed to Lieber Correctional Institution was returned to a Lancaster post office. Inside the package were two Bibles containing razor knives, a cell phone, ecstasy pills and more than 28 grams of cocaine.
Deputies identified Jones as the person who mailed the package from a Kershaw post office. In her car, authorities found a loaded handgun, drugs, cell phones and cash.
Jones is facing drug and contraband charges. She was released from jail on bond, and it wasn't known if she had an attorney.
